The Parties Involved in a Construction Accident Case
After you are hurt in a construction site, you must immediate tell your employer, site manager or supervisor. You and they are the first two parties involved. You are the plaintiff on this case. You will be the one bringing the case. Your employer is another party involved in the case, but they are not usually the one you are bringing your claim against. However, their insurance company is responsible for compensating you for your injuries through workers’ compensation. The employer’s insurance company is another party involved. Sometimes with a construction accident, there is a third party involved against whom you can directly bring a claim. That third party’s insurance company would then be liable for your injuries.
The best way to determine the extent of the parties involved in your accident is to consult with a Wyoming construction accident lawyer to get the full picture of who is involved in your injury. You will then know exactly who is responsible for compensating you for your damages. That will be your liable party.
Tips for a Successful Claim
Construction accident cases are straightforward to start with then they become challenging once you get into the civil court process. They are straightforward because you can simply go through your employer for compensation; sometimes, however, that gets denied, or sometimes there is a third party who is responsible for your compensation.
Generally speaking, if you want the results you deserve, there are a few things you need to do:
- Report your injury.
- Get evidence from the construction site.
- Go to the doctor.
These are three crucial steps. If you don’t take these steps, you have less of a chance of success in your case.
Make sure you tell your employer or supervisor to make an accident report. Have them give you a written copy of this report. Also, have them send it to any insurance company that needs that accident report. Without notice of your injury, your Wyoming construction accident lawyer is going to have a hard time defending your case. Your case will then be about proving that the incident happened at all. Then you have to worry about proving the injuries are related to the accident.
Take pictures of what caused you to be hurt. That might be the ladder rung that snapped, causing you to fall. It may be the object that fell from a height and hit you. Get photos of the surrounding area so your lawyer can get a good idea of the scene. The more evidence you have supporting your claim, the stronger your case will be and the higher the chances are that you will get the compensation that you deserve.
Lastly, you should NEVER delay seeking medical treatment. Every Wyoming construction accident lawyer will ask you if you’ve seen a doctor and received treatment for your injuries. It’s easier for them to defend your right to compensation when we have medical records to prove that you were harmed and have needed to disrupt your life going to the doctor and missing work to heal. You also don’t want to remain in pain. No one wants to continue to suffer, so seeing a doctor is essential.
