What mistakes should I avoid after a construction accident?
I’ve been asked, “What are the biggest mistakes a person could make in an accident at a construction site?” The biggest mistake would be to delay medical treatment. Have somebody on site call 9-1-1. When an ambulance shows up, don’t turn the ambulance away. Go to the hospital and get proper medical attention. Don’t assume that you’re okay just because it doesn’t hurt immediately.
It’s important that you also follow your doctor’s instruction. A doctor may say that you need to come in for the next six weeks, three days a week. Don’t put that off. Going to a doctor or going to a hospital can be inconveniences, but they can make a big difference in protecting your legal rights in a case. The other biggest mistake, perhaps the worst of all the mistakes is to delay hiring an attorney or to hire the wrong attorney. It’s important that you hire an attorney who has experience in prosecuting construction accident cases and can best help you protect your rights.
