Injuries are common on construction sites. Even on sites where every regulation is followed, sometimes the worst happens and you’re hurt on the job. What steps should you take to protect yourself if an injury on the construction site happens to you? The first step is to contact an attorney in Annapolis to review your case and protect your rights.
When an injury occurs, alert your employer and get medical care for your injuries. Your attorney will need information about your injury as well as the circumstances surrounding the incident. When you have received treatment, document as much information about the event as possible, including any negligence that occurred on the part of your employer or a co-worker. Your personal injury attorney will ensure you receive compensation for your medical bills, loss of income, and pain and suffering. You may be eligible for additional compensatory damages if your injury was the result of negligence on the site, such as inadequate training or activities that violate regulations.
