What To Do After Your Construction Site Accident
The steps you take after suffering a construction site accident can play a significant role in determining the success of your attempts to protect your legal rights. It’s often difficult to make the right decisions after a traumatizing injury, but doing so will prove tremendously helpful in the long run.
The Minnesota personal injury attorneys at GoldenbergLaw have been assisting hard-working construction site employees for decades. Based on our extensive experience in dealing with construction site accidents, there are a few things that workers should try do shortly after an injury:
- Seek medical attention immediately. If your injury is catastrophic, of course, emergency medical responders will come to the scene. However, even if the injury is not catastrophic, it is still very important to seek medical advice before returning to work.
- Identify any products that contributed to your injury. If there is a defective product involved, you could also have a claim against the manufacturer of that product. If your injury was from a product or machine, read about what to do after a product-related injury in our latest edition of GLAW.
- Don’t sign any settlement offers. If you do not know the full extent of your injuries, neither does your employer or its insurance company. On that note, call an attorney before you sign any paperwork that relates to your accident.
- Speak to our Minnesota personal injury attorneys. We have decades of experience litigating and negotiating cases on behalf of injured workers. We will advocate for your rights to compensation for your present injuries and make sure your rights are protected in the future.
