If you’re injured at work
A lot of people worry about missing work, worry about missing a paycheck, maybe you’re injured on the job and trying to ignore it. But that’s the worst thing you could do. If you get hurt on the job, you need to document it, report it and get medical treatment and then figure out the best way to protect yourself and your family.
Don’t make your situation worse by ignoring it
I know and understand a lot of people think that they are going to affect their job if they go out on disability or if they miss time. But the reality is is that if you don’t report it and you try to work through it and it becomes a bad situation, you’re not going to get any benefits because you’re gonna lose everything. THEN, your decision never to report your injury, will have been a very bad one.
So the right way is to protect yourself, figure out what’s going on, do all the right things for reporting, and then see what happens. One step at a time. Figure out what your rights are and then you can make a decision. Information is always a good thing. And a personal injury attorney can offer you that consultation and information for FREE. A lot of it I think is just people are fearful of the repercussions of reporting something like this. But you know, you need to manage, you want to manage your future, not let the future manage you. Because if you make a decision to do nothing, then you have no options as time goes on versus doing the right thing and figuring it out as you go.
