Steps to take after a workplace injury in Pennsylvania
When an accident occurs at a construction site, on the road or any other busy location, it might be hard to make sense of what happened. You should always be concerned first with your well-being and the safety of everyone around you. If the area is secure and you have the ability to record your impressions of the incident, you can do so by writing down notes and taking pictures. Knowing who made a particular material or which subcontractor was operating a piece of heavy equipment could be critical in collecting compensation for your injury. Report the accident to your supervisor and get the names of bystanders in case their testimony is eventually needed to prove your case.
