In order to properly pursue a personal injury claim for a construction site accident, one of the first things that is necessary is to determine the cause of injury. In some cases, injury is caused by faulty equipment such as a forklift or scaffolding. In other cases the cause of injury was mistakes made by other contractors. Still other construction site injuries are caused by tools that do not function properly.
An important step for your attorney to take is to obtain access to the construction site as soon as possible. It is also important to gain access to witnesses while their memory is fresh. Thus, it is important that you do not delay in making a decision to retain counsel to investigate your construction site accident lawsuit. Preserving evidence is an essential step to
conducting a proper investigation. Your attorney will want to inspect equipment and photograph the accident site as soon as possible. In addition, if faulty equipment is involved, it is important to obtain the operator manuals for this equipment.
Finally, your workers compensation carrier can be helpful or harmful to investigating your case. Therefore, it is important for your attorney to contact the insurance carrier as soon as possible to gain their support in clearing roadblocks to further investigation. The carrier can be instrumental, and it is in their best interests to do so, since they likelywill have subrogation interests in your litigation.
