If You’ve Been Injured at Work

Posted in on February 1, 2010

If you’ve been injured at work, no matter how minor the injury may seem at first, it is important to contact a law office that specializes in workers’ compensation claims immediately. The moments and days after an injury occurs are crucial and vital to an injured worker’s situation. There are many dangers involved in waiting to learn about your rights.

Many individuals believe that waiting until the injury “cools off” is the proper course of action. As many doctors will tell you, the true extent of an injury is not always known at first. Also, an injury that seems minor initially may worsen over time to the point where it becomes a major problem.

The truth of the matter is that it’s dangerous to one’s health to delay in seeking assistance. Most attorneys will offer a free consultation to an injured worker. Bachus & Schanker, LLC offers this free consultation at any time during the day or night. This means that, no matter how busy your daily schedule is, it is possible to speak with an expert attorney regarding options for proceeding.

There exists another danger in waiting to report a claim or assert your rights: this delay may make it more difficult to prove your case once you do hire an attorney. Because workers’ compensation cases are often decided in Court, evidence and facts become hugely important.

Traps to look out for after an injury has occurred are the “manipulative” bosses or coworkers. Though these individuals may not actually wish harm to an injured worker, the pleas to “not report” right away, or “take the day off, see if you feel better,” can be devastating if listened to. Nothing is more frustrating to a workers’ compensation attorney than getting a case too late to do any good for the injured client.

However, there usually is a lot of good that can come from a consultation with an attorney – even if the injured worker thinks it’s “too late” to report the injury. The attorneys at Bachus & Schanker, LLC encourage you to call our office immediately if you’ve been injured on the job. We believe in leveling the playing field so that injured workers can make the best out of a tough situation.
