Protecting Your Rights After a Construction Site Injury: We’re on the Job When You Can’t Be

Construction work is the backbone of growth and development in our communities. Whether you’re building skyscrapers in the city center or adding a new deck to a suburban home, construction workers face daily risks. Unfortunately, construction accidents happen, and when they do, knowing your rights and getting the proper representation is crucial. That’s where we come in: The Team at Stanley Law is on the job when you can’t be. Because a construction site injury can be serious and can put you out of work entirely, or worse.

The Risks of Construction Work

Construction sites, whether they are located on vast commercial properties or confined residential spaces, are fraught with hazards. From high heights and heavy machinery to electrical risks and unstable structures, construction workers operate in some of the most dangerous conditions of any industry. When accidents occur, they can lead to severe injuries, long-term disability, or worse. Common construction site injuries include falls, electrocution, being struck by objects, and getting caught in or between equipment.

Knowing Your Rights After an Injury

Understanding your rights is the first step toward protection if you’re injured on the job. Workers’ compensation is designed to cover medical expenses and lost wages, but sometimes, it’s not enough. In some cases, you might be entitled to pursue additional claims if negligence played a role in your injury. This can include negligence on the part of a third party, inadequate safety measures, or defective equipment.

What to Do If You’re Injured on the Job

If you’re injured while working on a construction site, taking the following steps can be crucial:
– Seek Medical Attention: Prioritize your health and see a healthcare provider for a thorough evaluation.
– Report the Injury: Inform your supervisor or employer about the injury immediately.
– Document Everything: Keep detailed records of your injuries and any medical treatments. Take photos of your injuries and the accident scene if possible.
– Consult with an Attorney: Contact Stanley Law Offices to discuss your case. The sooner you get legal advice, the better protected your rights will be.
