What are common mistakes people make if they have been injured on a construction site?
What are the most common mistakes that injured people make when they’re in a construction site accident? That’s a common question and a very important question. If you’re involved in a construction site accident, please, call us early and we’ll be happy to address that question relating to your specific case. One of our attorneys will do that. In fact, we got a call like that not too long ago. What our attorney told the person is, look, here’s the most common mistakes.
First of all, especially men, they think, hey, I’ll just tough it out, be macho, whatever. It’s a huge mistake because if you don’t get better like you’re hoping the next day or the next week or whatever and then you tell your work or report the injury and stuff, that’s going to reduce potentially the value of your claim. Also, if you don’t get medical assistance right away, that’s another huge mistake. People say, oh, I’ll just go home. I’ll sleep it off. I’ll take a day off. The weekend’s coming up. I’ll feel better on Monday. Then you don’t.
At least call us and we’ll advise you if you need to report the injury. Normally, the answer is yes. If you’re afraid about getting fired and stuff, that’s another reason to call us. We’ll help you through that process. Then if it looks like there might have been a fellow subcontractor who was at fault, we’ll start an investigation and see if we can capture evidence or witnesses and things like that. If the general contractor might have been at fault, that’s another different situation. All those things are reasons to call us. Don’t just stay at home with your leg up watching TV and just think it’s going to work out. At least call us and find out what you can do now to protect yourself physically and financially.
Remember, if you’re injured in a construction site accident, the call is free. The information is free. It can make the difference between thousands of dollars, tens of thousands of dollars, and in rare cases, millions of dollars if you call us first. We’re here because the most important person is you.
