Steps to Take in Workers’ Compensation
Being injured on the job is different from any other kind of injury because you have to take your employer into consideration. Here are some steps to take after being injured at work:
Report the injury to your employer. Do this as soon as you can. Don’t give your employer’s attorneys the opportunity to prove that your injury did not occur on company property or during your shift.
Tell your doctor. Let your healthcare provider know that your injury happened at work. When your doctor’s notes indicate this, you’ll have greater chances of receiving compensation.
Take your own notes. Provide your employer with a written notice (including the date of the injury and a description of the incident). You will have yet another safety net when seeking reimbursement.
In these situations, it can make all the difference to have a versatile, seasoned attorney on your side. A skilled professional can help at every stage of the process, including when you are filing your initial claims or, if necessary, when you are taking your case to court.
Financial Compensation to Support Your Recovery
If you win your workers' compensation case, you may receive a cash settlement. Clients typically use their settlement in support of the following:
Paying for medical expenses
Replacing lost wages from time away from work
Taking care of ongoing care costs
Don't let a personal injury—especially if it occurred at work—ruin your future and your peace of mind. Reach out to Robert Sciglimpaglia at his offices in Norwalk, Stamford, and Danbury, Connecticut.
