What To Do If You Have Been Injured on the Job

Help for the Injured Worker.

If you’ve been injured while working, here are some steps you should follow immediately:

Notify Your Employer of Your Injury.

You should report your injury to your employer. Notice to your employer is required to receive workers comp benefits. Notify your employer of any accident, even if your injury seems small at the time.

Seek Medical Attention.

You should request a panel of doctors from your employer. Also, you should see a medical professional so there is documentation of your injury.

Contact a Seasoned Workers Comp Lawyer.

Workers comp law can be complex, and the process to obtain workers comp benefits may be daunting. However, an experienced workers comp lawyer in Warrenton can help you obtain proper compensation.

Sometimes, employers and insurance companies make it difficult to get a workers comp claim approved.  When this happens, having a workers comp lawyer who strongly advocates for you and who understands workers comp law can make a difference in the outcome of your claim.

A workers comp lawyer also can assist you with some common obstacles in workers compensation cases:

? An employer’s denial of a workers comp claim

? An employer stopping the payment of benefits

? Employer fraud

? A misunderstanding of the limitations to workers compensation law
 

These steps should get you on the way to obtaining the workers comp benefits to which you are entitled.
