Three Important Things to Know if You are Injured at Work

If you’ve been injured at work, it can be a stressful experience. Not only do you have to deal with the injury itself, but the prospect of missing time from work and suffering a wage loss for an extended period can put your financial security in doubt. Fortunately, workers’ compensation benefits can provide a much needed recourse during this straining time. Here are three things to know if you are injured on the job:

  • Report every work injury to your supervisor or employer. Though it may seem admirable to attempt to tough it out, not reporting an injury may hurt or ultimately bar a claim for workers’ compensation later on.
  • Tell your medical provider that your injury is work related. As a result, your medical bills will be sent to your employer.
  • You may need a workers’ compensation lawyer to help you get the benefits you deserve. Workers’ compensation law can be complex and confusing, and your employer may try to resist paying you benefits. That’s why it’s often crucial to enlist the help of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to aid you with your claim. At Pond Lehocky Stern Giordano, our attorneys are highly experienced, handle various types of workers’ compensation cases, and are tireless advocates for workers’ rights. We’ll fight for you throughout every step of your workers’ compensation claim, so contact us now.
