Report the Accident
Anytime you get hurt – especially if it’s the first time you have been injured in a construction accident – you’re probably going to make some mistakes. One of the biggest mistakes people make in these cases is not reporting it. They may not even say anything to their boss, the general contractor, the sub-contractor, or whomever is in charge on that job site. If you get hurt at a construction site, tell somebody and put it in writing, either via text or email.
A second mistake people make is that they don’t preserve evidence. Take some pictures on the site as soon as you can. If you don’t have a camera on your phone, somebody next to you does. Get photographs – multiple angles, close ups, far away – of the defect, machinery, or situation that injured you. You will also want to document your injury with photos.
Contact an Attorney
Finally, the third mistake often made in these cases is not contacting an attorney in time. Give our firm a call; we’d love to speak with you about your Georgia construction accident case.
