People who have been involved in a construction accident site need to do a few things immediately. You need to make sure you let your employer know about the incident. Fill out the reports that are required by the employer and make sure you document that. Make sure you get to the doctors you need to and get the treatment that you need. Make sure you comply with your doctors, get the treatment that they tell you to get, and do what they tell you to do.
One of the other things that becomes important is hiring an attorney in a timely fashion. You want somebody to help you preserve the evidence. Things change quickly on a construction site. Witnesses, evidence, and equipment all disappear quickly. You want to get somebody involved to help you preserve all of that evidence.
The final thing is you want to hire the right attorney. You want somebody who has experience with construction cases, and focuses their practice on personal injury, including construction cases so they understand what to be looking for early on, how to deal with all of the regulations, and get the appropriate information.
Finally, you want to get somebody that’s a trial attorney. You want somebody who can take a case from the beginning all the way through it and somebody is not afraid to go to trial if that’s what’s necessary.
