Have you been injured while on the job?
Millions of Americans go to work each day and spend a good portion of their day in their work environment. With so many different types of jobs, there can be any number of ways in which someone can have an accident in a work environment. From an office to a factory to a construction site or railroad yard, accidents can happen anywhere. If you or a loved one has been injured in the workplace, you have rights under the Workers’ Compensation laws on both state and federal levels. Any employee injured in an accident during the course of their employment may be entitled to benefits. To find out more about your legal options in this situation, contact an injury and accident lawyer at the Malaise Law Firm in San Antonio.
When you are injured at work you must report the injury right away to your employer. A detailed report must be submitted by your employer to their workers’ compensation insurance company and you are entitled to be treated by a doctor of your choice from an approved list. Injuries from work related accidents can include anything from neck and back injuries to serious burns, fractures and head injuries.
Although you are entitled to these benefits by law, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company does not always have your best interests in mind. They represent your employer and may seek to cut costs, leading to your receiving inadequate treatment for your injuries, or have to return to work before you are fully recovered. Don’t take chances with your health and livelihood when you are in this position. When you have your own San Antonio personal injury lawyer handling your claim, you can rest assured that every possible benefit you are entitled to will be pursued by your legal counsel.
