Immediate Steps After a Construction Injury in Brownsville

The steps that are taken in the immediate aftermath of a workplace accident are often crucial in getting injured plaintiffs a favorable outcome. 

Taking these steps is a good place for people to start: 

  • Report the accident to your supervisor: Even in cases where negligence is not involved, there is still workers' compensation eligibility to consider. To get benefits of any kind, it’s necessary to inform the supervisor or manager, so they can initiate an investigation and document the details. 
  • Get medical care: Even with injuries that don’t seem severe, it’s still imperative to see a doctor. The most important reason is your health—injuries might not manifest themselves right away. From a legal perspective, having a doctor’s immediate documentation can be vital in demonstrating that the relevant incident was indeed the cause of subsequent medical issues. 
  • Document the incident: As soon as you are physically able, write down what happened. Your notes should include the date, time, and location of the incident and any contributing factors. Include specific information about the equipment, machinery, or tools involved. Our Brownsville construction accident attorney can use your notes as the basis for further investigation. 
  • Get witness statements: If there were witnesses to the accident, get their contact information, and ask them to provide written statements about what they saw. These testimonies can strengthen your case through corroboration. It’s best to act as soon as possible, while details are still in fresh in everyone’s mind. 
  • Preserve evidence: If you are physically able, take photographs of the accident scene. This can illustrate any hazardous conditions, defective equipment, or safety violations. This evidence may prove important in determining liability and supporting your claim. 

Securing Fair Settlements for Construction Injury Victims

The fight for a fair settlement can often be complicated, and a construction site injury is a prime example of that. Who is the liable party? It could be the employer. It could also be one of the many subcontractors that are often involved in a construction project. If the accident was caused by a design flaw, the liability may go to the architectural firm. 

It’s imperative that plaintiffs bring their lawsuit against the right party—otherwise, a case that might have been won could end up with no settlement. Our Brownsville construction accident lawyer has the ability to do a thorough investigation, bring a properly focused lawsuit, and do the work necessary to secure the financial settlement our clients are counting on.
