If you suffered an injury when a building collapsed in Southern California, your health and safety are the priority. Follow these steps to ensure your safety and protect your legal right to fair compensation after a building collapse injury:
If an ambulance does not take you to the hospital, go to the emergency room or your primary care physician as soon as possible. Injuries are often masked by adrenaline during a building collapse, so it is important to have a medical practitioner examine you for injuries.
Your doctor will maintain important medical records that are critical for establishing the severity and extent of your injuries. Write a log detailing ways that your injuries affect your daily life. Include dates and times, pain levels, and explain how your injuries prevent you from performing certain activities, such as work or hobbies you once enjoyed.
