Giving a Recorded Statement After a Construction Accident
After an injury sustained at a construction site, either as an employee at the construction site or as a guest to the construction site, it is never a good idea to speak to the insurance representative or the company representative to give a statement. Insurance representatives aren’t there to get the full story. They’re there, very simply, to try to get you or whoever was injured on the construction site to give a version that absolves their client of responsibility for the injuries that they’ve caused. We at the Chavez Law Firm are aware of this problem and are able to guide our clients through the process of not only figuring out what medical treatment they, but also how to get full and fair compensation for their injuries.
Reporting a Construction Accident Injury
Sometimes when clients get injured on a construction site, they want to know if they should report their injury to a boss, supervisor, or manager. The answer is yes, your injury should always be reported, and it should be done in writing with confirmation that the injury has been reported. But it doesn’t stop there — depending on the injury, they should immediately seek medical attention.
Once those two things—writing an injury report and seeking medical attention—are completed, then you need to look for and hire an experienced trial lawyer. If you have questions about navigating this process, we at the Chavez Law Firm stand ready to answer your questions.
Timeline for a Construction Accident Case
Oftentimes, our clients who have been injured in a construction site incident ask how long it will take to resolve this case. There are two major factors that contribute to how long a case takes. One is the medical treatment that the injured person needs to get them back to where they were before their injuries. A long healing process obviously adds time to a case. The other very important factor, if not the most important factor, is whether or not the insurance company involved in a construction case negotiates in good faith. In cases where the insurance or the company or the defendant company’s representative don’t negotiate in good faith, the cases go to trial because they are unwilling to provide full and fair compensation for the people who are injured.
At my law firm, we know this and we know how to prepare for this tactic from the very beginning. If you have a question, either because you yourself or one of your loved ones was injured or killed in a construction site, give us a call. We stand ready to answer all of your questions.
