Common Mistakes After a Construction Accident

There are several things people should do when they are injured on a commercial construction site. Number one, they need to report it immediately to their supervisor or their construction site manager. Number two, when they’re injured, they need to seek medical treatment right away. Number three, they need to follow up on their treatment once it’s been diagnosed. Number four, they should avoid giving a recorded statement to the insurance company.

Number five, you should find an attorney right away. It’s important to get an attorney, especially in cases where evidence needs to be preserved and witness statements need to be recorded.

Finally, you need to choose the right kind of attorney. You need to pick an attorney who is comfortable in the courtroom, who is not afraid to try cases and who will zealously advocate on their client’s behalf.
