We understand that construction workers do not like to be injured. We know that contractors often do not like to hear about their workers’ injuries. However, as unpleasant as the whole situation may be, it is important that you promptly report your nail gun accident injury before things become even more complicated and before you suffer financial, physical and emotional consequences due to your accident injury.
Some construction workers who are hurt by nail guns are able to get right back to work. For these workers, reporting is important to help improve safety procedures and help prevent future, potentially more serious, accidents.
Other construction workers who are hurt by nail guns may require surgery or suffer permanent disabilities. For these workers, reporting is also important to improve future safety procedures, but it is also important to protect their own potential recoveries.
In addition to reporting your accident to your employer, it is also important to report it to an experienced New York City construction injury attorney. An experienced attorney can help you fight for the legal recovery that you deserve, which may include compensation for your medical and rehabilitation costs, lost income, and other expenses.
