Common Types of Construction Accidents

Construction is one of the riskiest industries in the U.S. Falls, such as scaffolding, ladder, and roofing accidents, occur frequently on construction sites and account for 36.4% of the total workplace fatalities in the industry, according to the CDC. Apart from falls, construction workers often suffer:

Construction accidents often cause devastating long-term or lifelong injuries like spinal cord damage, traumatic brain injuries, limb amputations, and permanent disfigurement. 

What to Do After a Construction Accident in the Bronx, NY

You may be in pain, shocked, and confused after your construction site accident. Nevertheless, you must take the right steps to protect your rights and retain your eligibility for workers’ compensation. This is what you should do after a construction injury in the Bronx.
Step 1

Seek Medical Attention

Do this even if you feel almost fine and believe you suffered no serious harm. Some potentially fatal injuries, like traumatic brain injuries and internal organ damage, could have nearly imperceptible symptoms at first. You need a full medical check-up to be safe. You’ll also need these initial medical records to back your claim. 

Follow any medical care recommendations. Keep your appointments, do the recommended lab work, take any prescription medications, and limit your physical activity if necessary. Following your doctor’s orders will protect both your health and your eligibility to file for workers’ compensation. 

Step 2

Notify Your Employer or Supervisor

You have 30 days to notify your employer or direct supervisor of your construction site injury, or you may lose your right to claim workers’ compensation benefits. We recommend reporting your accident as soon as you can in writing. Keep a log of all your communication with the relevant persons.

Step 3

Document Everything

If possible, take multiple detailed photos and videos of the accident scene, or ask a coworker to do this for you. Focus on relevant details, like the worksite hazard that caused your accident. Collect the contact information of any witnesses, including your coworkers or anyone who saw the incident. Write down a detailed record of the accident while it’s fresh in your mind. 

Step 4

Consult an Attorney

Legal counsel may seem unnecessary if it’s obvious your injury occurred on the job, and your employer assures you their workers’ compensation provider will process your claim quickly and efficiently. However, construction workers are frequently unaware of all their rights or the potential value of their cases.

Remember, once you accept a workers’ compensation settlement, there’s no going back. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can let you know what you may expect and how to proceed with your claim.
