What to do after a work accident in Israel

 Conduct after a work accident


"What do you do after work accident?" is a question that all victims of work accidents ask themselves. In this article we will try to provide a solution to this question. If you have been in an accident at work, even if you were not seriously injured, still there is confusion and excitement. One must not lose their senses, and follow the guidelines below.

If it is a serious or fatal accident, and an ambulance arrives at the scene of the accident, you should not refuse to go by ambulance to the hospital. The ambulance driver must not sign any form or obligation, before he recorded the event details of the accident. The details must include the place of the accident, the circumstances of the accident and if, for example, there was loss of consciousness or delirium, to make sure the ambulance driver really wrote everything down.

If it is easier for the victim, and an ambulance has not arrived at the scene of the accident, one should go to the emergency room of the nearest hospital, accident department, or clinic. The victim is advised to get treatment immediately, and not to put off treatment at the evening or end of the day. One should not delay the receiving of medical treatment for the next day. Any delay in addressing health care can cause damage to the legal case work, and there is the possibility that the work accident will not be recognized because of the delay in medical treatment.

If you are hurt in a car accident on the way back from work, in a car accident on the way to work, or a car accident while working, this is also considered a work accident. Record all information about the other vehicle involved in the accident. If there is more than one vehicle involved in the accident, you have to record the details of all the vehicles involved in the accident. One should record the number of vehicle, type of vehicle, the owner's information, the insurance information, etc.

You must enter the full details of the other vehicle driver who was involved in a car accident, according to their ID. You must enter the following details, including their full name, exact address, phone number and cell phone, identity card and any other identification. Check that the phone details given are correct. You simply have to call and make sure that the person's phone rang.

You should find out and record all the details of each witness (except the driver) who was involved in the car accident. Later, when the other driver denies the incident or accident circumstances, witnesses will be of great importance. You should maintain regular contact with the witnesses, (congratulate them on holidays, for example) and not wait until the trial to contact them.

Make sure to obtain a certificate, discharge letter, preliminary hospital medical records or other documents from the emergency room, hospital, or clinic, as well as a record of all the complaints filed. If not all the complaints are recorded (eg. if he lost consciousness even for a few seconds), it is forbidden to leave the facility before the doctor treats the conditions. You have to ask the physician to sign next to the amendment if it was handwritten by the doctor. It is important to note that if, for example, a work accident also affected the elbow and knee, and the doctor did not write "harmed knee and elbow," there is a good chance that the National Insurance Institute will not recognize it as being injured in the car accident, and this will create complex legal problems later. If it is a regular work accident (or a vehicle work accident) is very important to mention to the doctor to record it as a work accident.

We must not give anyone the original medical documents. Doctors are required to provide only copies of the medical records. At a later stage it may be necessary to present the original documents to the court. If they are given to a third party, it may be very difficult to obtain them once again.

It is important to collect any documents and/or receipts indicating accident-related expenses. These include expenses for third-party help, (therapist assistant ... etc) travel expenses, and medical expenses that are not health-related, etc.

Victims must not talk to the insurance company about the work accident or any other matter before receiving advice from an experienced personal injury lawyer.

You should consult a personal injury attorney for expertise in work accidents in the early stages (first few hours or first days) of the accident.

Notify your employer as soon as possible about the accident. If the employer asks you to fill out an accident report, you should do this only after a consultation with an expert in workplace accidents.

In the case of a fatal work accident or an accident that was severely damaging, promptly report it to the Commissioner of Labor and Social Affairs Ministry of Labor to investigate the labor accident. Keep in mind that it is important to cooperate with the investigator from the Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs.

You must collect and record evidence of road work, including details of the hazards that may have caused the accident to occur. For example, take pictures of a car if it doesn't have fenders, broken stairs, or the lack of safety railing, etc. .

In conclusion, if you want to know "what to do after work accident", you should consult with a personal injury attorney as soon as possible. The attorney can guide you through what to do after you are injured in a work-related accident.
