Construction Accident Lawyer Lake Worth
If you’ve been hurt while working construction, please connect with a construction accident lawyer Lake Worth residents trust – and please do so soon. Whether you’re eligible for workers’ compensation benefits and/or it makes sense to file a personal injury claim related to your accident, there are time-sensitive reasons to connect with our firm as soon as you can.
The First Steps You Should Take After Getting Hurt While Working Construction
First and foremost, you’ll need to seek medical attention. If your injuries require emergency care, bookmark this page on your device and come back to it after you’ve attended to your injuries. Nothing is more important than your health. Similarly, connecting with an experienced Lake Worth construction accident lawyer at our firm can wait if you haven’t yet been screened for “invisible” injuries such as head trauma, internal bleeding, and soft tissue injuries. Construction workers are famously tough and many resist the idea of seeking medical care. If you’ve been hurt, go get checked out. You will almost certainly be entitled to reimbursement of your medical bills and failure to get checked out now may not only cause you physical harm, it may harm the strength of your legal case as well.
If you’ve already called for medical assistance or you will be seeking some very, very soon, you can (if you’re able) take some pictures of the accident scene, note names and the contact information of any witnesses to your accident, etc. Gathering evidence at the scene (when appropriate) can be helpful down the road.
At some point very soon, you’ll also need to file an accident report with your employer. If you feel comfortable doing so, you can submit the report before you connect with our firm. But if you fear retaliation, an undervalue of your benefits, etc. it is absolutely okay to connect with us first. However, you need to act quickly, as you may be barred from some legal options if you wait even a few days to file this report.
