Were you injured on the job?
Employers are responsible for ensuring our safety at work. So, when an injury occurs, it can be a difficult path to go down. While you may feel guilty or worried about blaming your employer, you have a right to seek compensation for any injuries or lost wages that occurred as a direct result of your injury. The attorneys at Fears Nachawati will step in as soon as the injury is brought to our attention, helping you every step of the way.
You have rights when injured on the job
Many of us don’t want to call out our employee when we are injured at work, but it’s important to do so if you are losing wages or suffering from an injury.
You have a right to:
- Medical treatment
- File a claim
- Legal representation
- To return to your job
- To disability compensation
- To appeal any decision made by your employer or insurance company
No matter what kind of injury you sustained, you should contact a local work injury attorney if you have medical problems that prevent you from returning to work, if your employer denies your workers’ compensation claim, or if your employer doesn’t pay your lost wages or medical bills within the settlement offer. It’s also important to contact us if your supervisor or boss retaliates against you in any way as a result of your claim.
The caring team at Fears Nachawati understands how difficult it can be to file a workers’ compensation claim against your employer, but we also know how important it is to file this claim and recover damages. Contact us today to learn more or visit our work injury blog for more information.
