If you have been injured in the workplace, you should get a workers comp attorney immediately. In this video, a legally certified specialist and trial attorney tells you just how important it is to get an injury lawyer the second an injury occurs.
Your first thought when you get hurt at work might be to act off embarrassment and keep the incident to yourself. You don’t want to get in trouble or risk discrimination and ostracization from the company.
Keeping this information to yourself will result in loss of medical treatment, compensation, and lifetime medical.
You need to seek out an attorney quickly so that you can be sent to a doctor who will provide the best treatment, on time, and advocate for you in your situation. If you do not have a full recovery, it is imperative that the doctor issues a comprehensive report to lock in what you are entitled to. This would refer to compensation for permeant disability plus lifetime medical for the injured body parts.
Allow an attorney to focus on the legal issues so that you can worry about getting better! If you want to know more, follow along with this video!
