What should I do after being injured in a construction accident?
Recently I got a call from someone who had been injured at a job site, and they asked me what they should do after a construction accident. The first thing they should do is seek medical treatment immediately and let their employer know that they were hurt on the job. Those things need to happen at the same time. Sometimes employers will claim that someone wasn’t actually hurt at the job. Beyond that, you need to seek medical treatment immediately to give you the best chance of recovery. Also, you need to follow the doctor’s orders. That gives you the best chance at making a complete recovery.
Another thing you need to do is hire an attorney immediately. The sooner you hire an attorney, the sooner that attorney can investigate what happened. Evidence gets lost and people can forget things. The attorney is there to ensure that all the evidence that can be gathered is gathered immediately. Also, you need to hire the right attorney. The right attorney is someone who has a large part of their practice devoted to personal injury law, and not just personal injury law but workplace accidents. Workplace accidents are very different than other personal injury claims in Texas. The attorney you hire needs to be a trial attorney. Trial attorneys work every case as if they are going to trial. If, for whatever reason, you are unable to get your case resolved, they’re always ready for trial.
