What to Do After a Workplace Injury in San Jacinto

Knowing what to do in the chaotic aftermath of a workplace accident can be difficult. Your priority must always be the health and safety of everyone on the scene.

  1. Call 911 right away if you or anyone else needs immediate medical attention.
  2. Get out of the way of any debris that may fall or avoid anything unstable in the area to prevent further injuries. If you are unsure whether you can safely leave the scene, ask the 911 operator what to do. They will be able to tell you how soon the first responders can arrive on the scene and whether you should stay put until then.
  3. Some injury victims choose not to leave the scene in an ambulance. If your injuries are stable, this might be a viable option, but it is vital to see a doctor immediately. Only a medical professional can determine whether you have suffered injuries and whether you need immediate medical attention. Some injuries are not immediately apparent, but by the time you show symptoms, you could be in a life-threatening situation. In addition to protecting your health, seeing a doctor will also protect your legal rights. Insurance companies sometimes try to claim that a victim made their injuries worse by delaying medical treatment. When you delay treatment, it will not only lead to serious medical complications, but it can impact your legal right to compensation as well.
  4. Once a healthcare professional has addressed your medical needs, it is time to find a workers’ compensation attorney. The sooner you have an attorney fighting on your side, the better protected your legal rights will be.
  5. Discuss your work-related accident with one of our trusted California workers’ compensation lawyers. Please contact us at (888) 488-1391 for a free consultation.
