Construction sites can be extremely dangerous. In addition to the risks associated with heavy machinery and large vehicles with big blind spots, workers are also at risk of falling off scaffolding or being hit by falling objects.
If you suffered injuries while working at a construction site, you may be wondering what your next steps should be. Our Texas construction accident lawyers have helped many people just like you after on-the-job injuries, and we know that victims who follow a few important steps immediately after their accidents are more likely to recover the compensation they deserve.
Those steps include:
- Notifying management or your supervisor about the accident. Filing a claim for workers’ compensation benefits requires notifying your employer right away about your injury. If you wait too long, it may be harder to prove that your injury happened at work, putting your chances of getting compensation at risk.
- Getting medical attention right away. Don’t wait to see a doctor or go to the hospital after a construction site injury. The longer you wait, the greater the chances that you’ll suffer complications. Waiting can also create doubt about the time and origin of your injuries.
- Calling a lawyer. Your injuries may leave you unable to work and without the paycheck you and your family rely on. With an attorney on your side, you can focus on getting better instead of worrying about your financial future.
