I was injured on the job, what do I do first?
Make sure that you’ve reported your injury to your supervisor or to your boss at the company. You don’t want a situation where the company claims they have no knowledge of your injury. Once you report your injury obviously you need to seek medical attention, if your injury warrants that. It’s important that once you determine you need a lawyer you contact a lawyer as soon as possible to preserve your legal rights. There are certain statutes of limitations that apply both to filing a workers’ comp claim and to filing a civil lawsuit. It’s important that you consult with a lawyer to determine what your legal rights are and what type of benefits you’re entitled to. If you’ve been injured as a work, as a result of a workplace injury give us a call Bailey Javins & Carter.
