After a Los Angeles Construction Accident - What You Can Do
Many people do not know what to do after a construction accident. They may be unsure of their particular legal rights and whether they can even seek financial damages for their injuries. That is why one of the most important steps to take following an accident of this kind is to consult an attorney. A Los Angeles construction accident attorney can talk to you about what happened and can determine not only whether you have the right to file a claim, but also what this claim should be worth. This may include financial damages for more than just medical care and lost wages. Emotional trauma, pain and suffering, and future expenses or lost earnings may also be taken into account. An attorney can work with professionals in medicine and economics to properly evaluate the worth of your claim.
Immediately after a construction accident, it is also important to take the following steps:
- If you were working or at work at the time of the accident, inform your employer of what occurred.
- Keep notes of all the details of the accident and your injuries.
- Take pictures of the scene and of your injuries, if possible.
- Seek medical care as soon as possible.
- If anyone witnessed the accident, be sure to get their information for future reference.
- Keep detailed notes and all receipts from the medical care you receive.
- Contact a lawyer to discuss filing a claim or lawsuit.
Why do construction accidents occur?
A construction accident may have any one or a number of potential causes. Negligence on the part of the construction company, such as failure to fully implement safety or training regulations may cause an accident, as may faulty equipment or a mistake on the part of a construction site worker. Depending on the particular cause of the accident, the injured party may be able to file a claim or lawsuit in civil court in order to seek monetary damages.
