Workplace Injuries

dangerous work area

A job injury can result in Workers Compensation claims for permanent injury to the body. Examples include lifting and carrying injuries which lead to back surgery and lifelong limitations. Most importantly, these limitations have vocational, or future work, implications. Employees injured on the job need a qualified attorney to represent them before the insurance company of the employer's business. A worker may be entitled to permanent and total Workers Compensation benefits if the workplace injury and limitations are severe enough.

If you are hurt at work, notify your employer as soon as possible to report the injury. Do not delay. An accident report should be filled out by the employer. The business will generally not pay you back for going to doctors or hospitals it has not approved. If you need emergency treatment, of course, seek treatment immediately. However, tell your employer as soon as possible about what happened. If the employer will not fill out an accident report, call us anyway to help file your Workers Compensation claim.
