What to Do If You’re Injured on a Construction Site

The construction industry remains one of the most dangerous fields in the world. Hopefully, the site manager is doing everything by the book to make sure that their workers are properly protected on the job, but mistakes are bound to happen. If you’ve been injured on a construction site, you’ll need to do the following immediately after the incident.

Seek Emergency Medical Treatment

Of course, the first step is to get emergency medical treatment. You might need to go to the ER or the local hospital for medical assistance or use one of the first-aid kits available on site.

Notify Your Supervisor

The next step is to notify your supervisor or site manager. If you’re an independent contractor like most construction workers, you’ll need to report it to the company that hired you. Hopefully, they have insurance and have filled out all the necessary paperwork to cover any mishaps on the job. If you wait to report your accident, you may not be entitled to workers compensation.

Fill Out a Workers Comp Form

Next, you should fill out a worker’s compensation form. Your site manager should provide you with all the information you’ll need to get the form and fill it out correctly. If you have any questions, you can ask the manager for help or contact a personal injury lawyer.

Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer

Regardless of the situation, it’s best to have a personal injury lawyer on your side. This person can answer all your questions, represent you in court, and make sure that you get as much money as possible to help compensate for the accident.

You shouldn’t have to go through this experience alone. Contact the attorneys at Randy Kaplan Law Offices to find a personal injury lawyer in Philadelphia and New Jersey.
