What do I do after I have been injured?
Your workplace has a responsibility to adhere to federal and state safety regulations. If you have been injured on the job, you could be eligible for workers’ compensation.
The first thing you should do, following your accident, is notify your supervisor.
Then, you should seek medical attention.
Finally, you should seek legal representation.
Even if your case seems straight forward, your claim could still be denied. Many accident victims don’t realize that they can have issues with their workers’ compensation claims. So, to prevent any unexpected surprises, you should hire legal representation.
What are some types of workplace injuries and accidents?
Some common accidents in the workplace include:
- Faulty Machinery
- Chemical Burns
Injuries you can sustain in industrial accidents include:
- Broken Bones
- Spinal Injuries
- Traumatic Brain Injuries
- And even death
Most accidents that occur in industrial workplaces result in serious injuries that can take weeks to heal. These injuries are so severe, that your workers’ compensation probably won’t cover all of your injuries. It’s important that you have experienced legal representation to assist you and answer your questions and guide you throughout the process.
