Question:

What mistakes should I avoid after a construction accident?

Answer:

The other day, we had someone call who had been injured while working on a construction site. They asked us what are the common mistakes that people who have been injured on construction sites make and how they can be avoided. Common Mistakes After a Construction Accident Some of the common mistakes that we see people make is that they don’t report their injury to their employer. They don’t make a claim, call 9-1-1, or report it to the law enforcement so that an investigation can be done. Doing so will make sure documentation is done and evidence is preserved. Another mistake that we see is that people don’t seek medical attention right away after they’ve been injured. This is very important to do not only for your own benefit and your safety, but also for your claim.

Another mistake that we typically see is that people don’t seek legal advice right away. They don’t hire attorneys who specialize in these types of accidents. The more specialized your attorney, the stronger your claim. Insurance companies will feel pressure from an experienced attorney knowing the risk that they might be able to take the case to trial. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. We’re always here to help.
