Everyone on a construction site needs to be mindful because, let’s face it, it’s a dangerous job. If you have a construction accident, there are special regulations and considerations besides worker’s compensation to be taken into consideration.
If you’re hurt on a construction site:
You need to
- Seek medical attention you may need right away
- Report the accident right away
- Get a lawyer who knows labor law / construction accident law AND a lawyer who can help you with worker’s compensation – this is detailed work and the firm needs to be set up to handle both sides of your case and most firms are not equipped to do both well
You want a law firm who can do both your worker’s compensation AND your personal injury liability case – to make sure your rights are fully protected and all the facts that need to be determined are done ASAP. One difference in facts can mean the difference between you having a successful case where ALL your damages are compensated for, and ust one fact different you gt nothing! The law is just tricky and it’s very important in any kind of accident:
- Seek medical treatment
- report right away
- find the right lawyer to investigate all the facts on your behalf
Companies will work to persuade you NOT to file, or to put it on your OWN insurance, this or that. NO! You want to protect yourself. You never know how an injury’s going to turn out. Sometimes the simplest injury upfront can turn out to have devastating consequences. Don’t ever do that – don’t ever let a company talk you into that.
People who work under the table obviously are at a sever disadvantage if they’re ever hurt on site at work – because when there isn’t worker’s compensation in place, that’s even more problematic. Because you never know what’s just around the corner, you need to know who to call and what to do next.
