What do I do if an accident happens while I’m on the job?
When you sustain an injury while on the job, it’s crucial to take immediate action. Firstly, prioritize seeking medical attention to address your health and well-being. Secondly, if you’re physically able, make an effort to contact or gather any potential witnesses who may have observed or heard anything related to the incident. These witnesses can provide valuable testimony and information that could prove essential for your case when dealing with a workplace injury. Then be sure to contact a qualified personal injury attorney. For example, if you are driving for work and someone rear ends you that is not employed by your employer, then not only do you have a worker’s compensation claim because you were injured while on the job, but you also have a personal injury claim because you were injured by a third party not related to your employer.
