Recovering from a Serious Accident
The consequences of a construction accident can change a person’s life. While there are laws in place meant to protect the safety of workers, mistakes can still happen if a foreman or other manager fails to keep all safety checks in place.
Some common construction accidents include:
- Falls, either from scaffolding or ladders
- Slip and fall accidents
- Pinching or crushing between objects
- Machinery accidents
- Blunt force impact
What to Do Next
Once you are injured, the first thing you need to do is seek medical attention. Go to a doctor you trust. Tell them everything that happened and make sure your injuries are well-documented. The next thing to do is contact an experienced West Virginia personal injury lawyer who can help you proceed.
While it would be nice to believe your employer will do whatever it takes to ensure you get the care you need for recovery, the truth is doing so could make them out to be irresponsible employers. Their safety rating could be impacted due to their inability to maintain a safe workplace.
Such unsafe conditions could result from issues like:
- Lack of proper safety equipment
- Tripping or slip hazards
- Improperly maintained or faulty equipment
- Misuse of guards on power tools
- Excessive debris or clutter at jobsite
