Question: What should I do if I’m injured in a construction accident?
You’ve probably been involved in a construction accident. First thing you need to do is get medical attention right away. Second thing you need to do is report the accident to your employer or whoever is responsible for running the construction site. Third thing you need to do is open up a Workers’ Compensation claim; your employer will help you do that.Workers’ Compensation will cover you for your medical bills and lost wages, but they will not cover you for pain and suffering, so the fourth thing you need to do is contact an attorney to find out if you can recover for pain and suffering from the party responsible for the accident. The important thing to know is that Workers’ Compensation, although it will cover your medical bills and lost wages, does not allow you to sue your employer. It’s important for you to contact an attorney to find out if there is a responsible third-party that you can recover from.
