What to do if you Were Involved in a Workplace Accident

What to do if you Were Involved in a Workplace Accident

No matter your occupation, if you are working and are injured due to another party’s negligence, you may be entitled to compensation. While workplace accidents are more common in jobs that require physical labor, you would be fooling yourself if you believed a serious injury cannot occur in a quieter workplace as well. This is why if you find yourself injured in a workplace accident, you must contact an experienced attorney today to help you recover the compensation you deserve. 

What is the function of workers’ compensation?

Essentially, workers’ compensation is there to give you all the financial support you need to cover medical bills, lost wages, and a percentage of your paycheck until you are ready to work again. Submitting a workers’ compensation claim will go through insurance, as opposed to directly suing your employer, which may leave you without a job. While the process seems simple enough, there are times where your claim may be denied or the compensation you receive is unsatisfactory. If this is the case, and you believe you are entitled to more compensation then you are currently receiving, contact a knowledgeable attorney who will help you recover the compensation you need.

How do I know I am entitled to workers’ compensation?

If you can prove that you were injured on the job, then there is a good chance you will be entitled to worker’s compensation. Worker’s compensation may help cover your medical bills, lost wages, in-home care and more.

What is a third-party lawsuit?

If you believe you were injured on the job due to another party’s negligence, then you may be able to recover additional compensation. For example, if the property owner where the work was being done acted negligently, or the manufacturer or designer of the equipment you were using is at fault for the injuries you have sustained, you may be able to file a third-party lawsuit. If you wish to file a third-party lawsuit, it is important you know that this matter most likely deserves a comprehensive investigation in order to seek out all responsible parties and prove their negligence.
