Did You Get Injured At Work And Think You Have A Case? Don't Let Your Employer Avoid Compensation And Get A Lawyer Today

Your employer may not be upfront about what your benefits are if you were injured at work. If you were injured at work and you think you could have grounds to put together a legal case, you want to get a personal injury consultation.

Find a legal professional that specializes in these types of cases, where there are medical injuries and employers that don't want to take responsibility. Here are some of the things that you'll have to do throughout this process. 

Evidence of Accident Cause

You need evidence that the accident was caused at work. These are things that your lawyer may request right away from your employer if you can't get them on your own, so the employer can't change their mind:

  • Video surveillance of the accident
  • Report filed
  • Statements from other employees and witnesses
  • Pictures of the scene of the accident

If you took pictures, other people took pictures, or you have eyewitnesses, this could be good enough if you can't get your employer to cooperate with the reports or videos.

Personal Injury Medical Evaluations

If there was a trip for emergency medical help when the injury took place, this will be evidence for the case. Your lawyer may want you to get a personal injury medical evaluation from another physician, in case there was anything missed in the emergency room, and in case you will need some long-term care to treat the injury.

The initial treatment of the injury may not have been adequate, or you may have had to wait on tests, scans, and to see how the injury would heal. The lawyer will look at this medical evaluation to determine if you have a strong enough case to file a lawsuit against your employer, and what type of medical bills you'll have for the future.

The reason for filing a claim will be for you to get the compensation that you need. This could be compensation from:

  • Lost wages
  • Medical bills
  • Emotional strains
  • Late fees and charges from the inability to pay bills

Your employer's lack of cooperation to pay for workers compensation or the injury that happened on their property can be used against them in a court of law.

If you have an injury that occurred because of your job, and it happened on commercial property, you want to get a lawyer. Evaluate your evidence and injuries and you can go from there.
