As a plumber, your work always has risks but those risks may not always be the same. The risks you face when fixing a plumbing problem in an existing residential space may be very different that then risks you face when you are working on new construction. However, now that you have been injured the risks may not be the most important thing that you need to know about. Instead, your focus now should be on what you can do to recover from your injuries.

Your Recovery is Important

When you do your plumbing work on a construction site you are not only a plumber but also a construction worker. Accordingly, it is important to know what to do when you are injured on a Brooklyn construction site. Specifically, we encourage you to:

  • Get medical attention as soon as possible.
  • Understand that your injuries may be covered by workers’ compensation.
  • Talk to a New York City construction attorney about whether it is possible to file a personal injury lawsuit.
  • Report your accident (but do not talk to anyone about the details of the accident).
  • Fight for your fair and just recovery.

These steps can help protect your recovery and help you get the financial relief that you need to get better.
