When It Comes To Your Workers’ Compensation Claim, Think Long-Term

If you’re hurt on the job, file a workers’ compensation claim.

As crazy as things have been and as high as unemployment is, those who are working are feeling the added pressure to stay employed. Even if an accident happens on the job or an employer isn’t following CDC regulations in the workplace, you might be worried about talking to a lawyer, jeopardizing your career, or being out of work. We are hearing more of this concern right now than ever, and we understand.

Take your health seriously.

Remember, your health should always be your top priority. Just because you’re worried about your job doesn’t mean you should take your health lightly. Workers’ compensation is set in place to take care of injured workers like you. An employer is not supposed to penalize you for filing a workers’ compensation claim. You really need to do that and get legal advice  — it’s free. There’s never any payment to a workers’ compensation attorney until a judge authorizes a lawyer’s fee. So it’s always good to get information.

Some basic steps: File your workers’ compensation claim and see a doctor

It’s crucial to take immediate action and file a claim to protect yourself. You have to be your own best advocate. And then, when you have an attorney who has a team dedicated to workers’ comp on your side, you don’t have to face this alone. Some basic steps:  File a claim. See a doctor. Don’t try and work it out under the table with your employer. Because you never know how things are going to turn out in the long run and you want to protect yourself. Your employer will only play nice until hospital bills or therapy bills get shown to them. Then they sing a different tune. Do it right from the beginning.  That way you’re protecting your long-term ability to work and take care of your family. You’ve got to think long-term in situations like these.
