Work Related Injury Attorney West Palm Beach FL
For some reason, we can feel embarrassed when we get injured at work. We think that it was our fault or that others will think we are careless. But when you don’t speak up about a work-related injury, you might be causing yourself suffering down the road. The law firm of Lyle B. Masnikoff& Associates, P.A. wants to help.
The Incident Report
All work related injuries should begin with proper treatment, of course. As soon as possible, the injured person (or someone who was present) should fill out an incident report to fully document what happened. This will serve as evidence in a court setting.
Next, you will need to document the treatments you have received, as well as any payments from work. This will show whether you have gotten compensated already or if you have accepted a settlement outside of the courts.
