What to do when injured at work?
If you are injured at work, what you do immediately after being injured is crucial.
First Step - Speak with a lawyer!If you are injured at work, contacting a lawyer right away is crucial. All too often, the employer fails to follow the law when it comes to protecting the injured worker's rights.
If you speak with a lawyer right away, a lawyer can ensure that you get ALL of the medical and financial benefits that you are entitled to, without unnecessary delay.
Second Step - Go to a doctor of your choice!Selecting the right doctor can make the difference between being faced with the reality of having to return to work before you are well enough to, and being able to receive QUALITY medical care and recover fully before going back to work.
