Injured On The Job?
Being injured on the job can be the beginning of a time of uncertainty and stress. You know you need medical care, but you may be concerned about how your needs will be met. Will your medical bills be paid? How will you make up lost wages?
First Steps After Being Injured At Work
The first step is always to inform your supervisor that you have been injured and that you are seeking to file a workers’ compensation claim. Even if your injury did not occur at work, you may be able to file a claim if you were carrying out work duties. For example, driving to get supplies counts as being on the job.
Once you have informed your supervisor and secured the immediate medical attention you need, the process of actually securing benefits begins. Too often the doctors who see injured workers minimize or deny the full scope of the injuries people have suffered.
We can help ensure that you are treated fairly by your employer and the workers’ compensation system.
We assist workers who have suffered all levels of injuries and classification, including:
- Temporary partial disability
- Temporary total disability
- Permanent partial disability
- Permanent total disability
