What to Do After a Construction Accident
If you or a loved one has been injured at a construction workplace, these are the do’s and don’ts to follow for best results:
- Immediately seek medical attention
- Alert your supervisor
- Do not attempt to ignore or hide the injury
- Record the circumstances that led to the injury
- Take note of any unsafe working conditions or hazards
- Document the names and numbers of witnesses, contractors, and subcontractors
- Use your phone to take pictures of the accident scene and your injuries
It’s crucial to gather as much evidence as possible so we can make a full and fair legal claim.
Do I Need To Prove That Someone Else Is Responsible?
It’s natural to think that someone needs to be personally responsible or negligent for you to make a claim after a construction site injury.
No one has to be at fault if you are injured on a construction job and want to file a workers’ compensation claim.
However, if someone’s negligence or harmful actions were the cause of your injuries, then you could have a personal injury claim. In these types of cases, yes, you would need to show proof that the other party is responsible in order to recover damages.
Our legal team can assess your case and determine if there was a negligent party at fault and if you should pursue a personal injury case against them.
What If My Employer Says It Was My Fault?
When it comes to workers’ compensation cases, you do not need to prove fault in order to collect money. If your workplace insists that you caused the injury or the insurance company refuses to pay, then our workers’ compensation legal team can help you.
You have rights, and we will fight for them on your behalf, even if it needs to be taken to court. We’ve successfully handled many Atlanta construction injury cases and know how to protect your rights.
What Compensation Can I Recover?
First, we need to deeply understand your case. This is so we can help you determine what damages are worth in your case. Each situation and injury are different, but Attorney Bryce Angell and his law firm have experience with many construction injury cases and can calculate your damages such as:
- Costs of medical treatment
- Lost wages
- Diminished earning capacity
- Emotional trauma
- Loss of consortium
Each case is unique, so we will discuss your claim in detail to determine what damages are possible in your situation.
How Can You Help Me?
When you’ve been injured on a construction site, the main goal of the insurance companies is to settle the matter as quickly and cheaply as possible. Most of the time they communicate with you professionally and quite friendly. Remember, they don’t work for you.
So the first way we help you is by empowering you with the phrase, “Talk to my lawyer.” You will recover from your injuries faster if you don’t have to deal with insurance company representatives, and just focus on healing.
We will aggressively represent your interests for the best possible outcome. This includes navigating the complicated legal process for you and advocating for the full and fair compensation you deserve. You won’t have to worry about being taken advantage of or having a claim wrongfully denied when you hire The Angell Law Firm.
