This is Part 2 in our NYC personal injury video series: “What should I do if I get hurt at a job site?”
It depends what kind of job site it is. Is it a construction site? If this should happen, it’s very important that you take note of what it is that you fell on and who was present. Go and get yourself checked out, call an ambulance, and report it to your supervisor. Again, the situation with a reported accident versus unreported – if you don’t let people know you got hurt, down the road you’re going to have a problem. People are going to say, “Oh, he wasn’t really hurt. He didn’t tell anybody about it.” It’s very important to report that.
