You are a loyal and dedicated employee who goes to work every day. You rightfully anticipate that no matter what type of work you perform, your employer will do everything in their power to ensure your safety on the job. If somehow, you do get injured, you expect that your employer will help make things right to the best of their ability.
Unfortunately, many employers fail to keep their employees safe. To make matters even worse, they or their insurance company fight to keep you from getting the compensation you are entitled to for your work injuries. If this situation sounds all too familiar for you, it’s time to contact experienced La Grange workers’ injury attorneys who will stand up for your rights.
The actions you take or fail to take after a workplace injury can make the difference between getting financial help or not. Taking the right steps can help your La Grange workers’ injury lawyers to maximize your workers’ compensation benefits, as well as reduce your stress. If you fail to follow the policies and procedures of your employer or the state, you may decrease your chances of being paid for your damages.
First, ensure you get the medical attention that fits the severity of your injury. If you need to go to the emergency room, do so. If your injuries are not urgent, you might be better off reporting them to your employer and finding out what doctor you should seek care from.
Next, carefully adhere to the advice of your doctors, therapists, and other medical professionals. By doing this, you can help prove that your injuries are real and that you are committed to doing what it takes to get better.
Finally, contact workers’ injury attorneys who have a track record of successfully settling or litigating their clients’ cases. With most workers’ compensation claims, employees are taken more seriously when they have legal representation.
The value of workers’ compensation claims varies between claimants. In general, the more severe the injury, the higher the compensation. Your claim will seek compensation for:
