What to Do After a Workplace Injury
If you’ve recently suffered an injury at your place of work, it’s important to act quickly. The sooner you start filing a claim, the more likely you will be to remember the specifics of your accident. These key details can bolster your claim for maximum compensation. After a workplace injury, take the following steps as soon as you can:
Report your injury to your employer. Don’t give your employer’s attorneys the opportunity to argue that your injury wasn’t caused on company property or during your shift. Be sure to keep a copy of the report (including the date of the injury and a description of what happened) that can be used as evidence if needed.
Seek medical attention. Tell your health care provider that your injury happened on the job. When their notes indicate the injury occurred at your place of work, it may increase your chance of receiving compensation.
Team up with an attorney. If your injury already was a result of your employer’s negligence, you likely can’t count on them to protect your best interests when it comes to your recovery. Let a skilled legal professional advocate for the outcome you deserve.
Entering into a legal battle with your employer can be intimidating, but you need to put your best interests first. When an injury is threatening your livelihood, you deserve every opportunity to pursue a fair result, and that includes proper financial compensation.
Don't let your employer's actions decide your future. Contact us when you're ready to move forward.
