No matter what industry you work in, accidents on the job can happen. In fact, nearly 4 million workers are seriously injured on the job every year, according to the United States Department of Labor.
If you’ve been injured at work, chances are you will be asked to fill out workers’ compensation paperwork.
Think carefully before you sign anything.
Although your boss or supervisor may care about your well-being, your employer is most likely looking out for themselves. You may not think you need a personal injury attorney. But your employer has probably already hired a team of lawyers who specialize in keeping down their costs despite your medical expenses and needs.
A broken arm may not seem like a big deal. But what if it prevents you from ever being able to do the work you currently do?
What if you need training for another position?
What if you need subsequent surgeries, rehabilitation and physical therapy to recover?
Who will pay for those expenses?
On one side of the room will be your employer, their attorneys and their physician – armed with research, medical records and histories tailored to benefit them.
On the other side of the room will be you.
