What should I do after being injured in a construction accident?
I had a young man that came in the other day who was involved in a horrible construction accident and wanted to know what he should do. There are several things that must be done, one of which is to make sure you notify the employer. You must also notify the general contractor, or the person who’s in charge of the job site. Also, there are federal regulations that apply to construction accident areas. OSHA may be involved. OSHA stands for Occupation Safety Health Administration. The accident may need to be reported to them. Sometimes on a job site, OSHA isn’t contacted.
If you hire an experienced lawyer, which is also important, they can help guide you through this process to make sure that OSHA and all proper authorities are contacted. An experienced lawyer can also help you do additional investigation. There may be evidence and equipment that needs to be preserved and examined. There may need to be videos of the job site that need to be obtained. All of this could disappear very quickly without the help of an experienced attorney. If you have any questions, we are here to help.
