After you are injured at work, your first response might be to head to the hospital for treatment. Once your condition is stabilized, that’s when the work really begins for your personal injury attorney.
The Steps to Take When Injured at Work
Once you have been injured at a Miami, Orlando or Palm Beach company, you need to talk to your supervisor about the incident and get treatment, as needed. This will create a record of the accident and it will start the process for worker’s compensation.
After you have been examined by a doctor, ask them to assess whether you will be able to return to work, or if you need to stay at home for the recuperation period. These notes can then be passed on to the worker’s compensation department to begin your payment.
