Construction workers are at a significant risk of suffering workplace injuries. For this reason, many employers adhere to strict regulations that mandate regular safety briefings and equipment inspections.
However, it is impossible to entirely eliminate the chance of serious injuries at construction sites. It is crucial that you understand what steps to take in case you are injured during construction work.
If you or a loved one has been injured in a construction accident, call Zinda Law Group at (800) 863-5312 for a free consultation with a Dallas construction injury attorney.
What Should I Do Immediately After an Injury?
Seconds matter when you have been hurt on a construction site. If you act quickly to apply first aid and properly treat your injury, you will maximize your chance of making a full recovery.
While minor cuts and burns may be able to be treated with first aid measures, more serious injuries warrant a trip to the emergency room.

I did not know what to do. I had never been hurt in a wreck before and this was a major accident that was not my fault. I reached out to Zinda Law Group and they were fantastic, answered all my questions, got me help immediately, and took care of everything!!
There comes a time when you need someone in your corner that you can trust. Our time came when we knew we needed the advice and counsel of an attorney. The day we walked into Zinda Law Group we knew we were covered.
There is a reason why this law firm has a 5 star rating. My experience with personal injury attorney Joe Caputo and all of the staff at Zinda Law Group has been excellent... I would definitely recommend Zinda Law Group.
Maria Ciara-Former Client
This is a really great firm! They settled my personal injury case in a year. Throughout the whole process, they were keeping in touch with me and helping me get the best treatment possible. They honestly know what they are doing. It was a pleasure working with these guys.
Everyone was so professional and was very interested in helping me with my issues. They were very upfront and honest about what I could expect.
I contacted Zinda Law Group after getting nowhere on my own with a personal injury case. I am so thankful I did. They took it off my plate and handled everything from appointments, to phone calls, and emails.
When Should I Tell My Employer?
Once you have received immediate treatment for your construction accident injuries, make sure to report your injury to your employer. Doing so is necessary in many states in order to secure workers’ compensation benefits for ongoing treatment.
Creating an early report of your construction site injury will also help you build a case to maximize your compensation. Your statement to your employer should be detailed so that you can use the statement later to assist you in remembering important dates or details about the accident.
How Should I Handle Medical Treatment?
If your injury is serious, go to the emergency room immediately. Be sure to follow any treatment directions or instructions given to you by the doctor who treats you for your injuries.
Make sure to take prescription medication as directed and only return to work with your doctor’s approval. If you neglect to follow any professional medical recommendations and suffer additional injuries, you may not be able to recover the compensation you deserve.
When you do return to work, do not operate any heavy machinery while under the influence of prescription medication.
