You’re doing your job, just like you always do in Palm Beach when you accidentally cut your finger on a piece of machinery. It doesn’t seem like a big deal, so you wrap it up in a bandage and you head out the door. But the law firm of Lyle B. Masnikoff & Associates, P.A. wants you to know that any injury on the job could be more than just an inconvenience.
Hurt on the Job?
The law states that if you’re hurt because of a work-related action, you should be compensated for any medical bills or treatments that you incur. Now, a scratch may not seem like it’s going to amount to anything, but you still want to have it checked out.
If you don’t get it checked out, and you don’t file a workers’ compensation report, and the scratch gets infected, you may not be able to get the expenses covered for the treatment.
Contact the law firm of Lyle B. Masnikoff & Associates, P.A. today to find out more about what to do when you’re injured at work. That scratch may not be dangerous, but it can’t hurt to have it looked at if it happened at the office.
