Construction workers face dangerous work environments every day with potential hazards like heavy equipment, falling tools and dangerous scaffolding. Unfortunately, serious injuries at construction sites — both small and commercial — are all-too common. While regulations, inspections and job safety courses attempt to avoid these injuries, accidents still happen as the nature of the job itself is dangerous. When an injury occurs, it can be devastating to you as well as your family.

The first step after suffering from a construction accident is contacting an experienced construction injury Miami attorney at Leighton Law to help you enforce your rights for workers’ compensation in Florida. We’re ready to hear your story and make sure you receive the compensation you’re entitled to.

What to Do After a Construction Injury

There are a number of important steps to take after a construction accident injury to protect yourself and make sure you receive everything you’re entitled to. The first step, of course, is getting medical attention. Next, make sure the injury is reported to the construction site manager or your employer and keep a record of this report. Collect contact information from anyone who witnessed the injury and do your best to preserve any evidence, including photographs of your injuries, the work site and the equipment that was being used at the time.

Gathering this information is vital to making sure you get the compensation you deserve. As your construction injury Miami attorneys, we’ll go over your case with you and make sure your case is filed within the deadline and complete a thorough investigation as soon as possible to ensure success.
