Even though employers should have their employees’ health and wellness in mind, safety can often be overlooked in bustling and busy workplaces.
That’s why personal injury attorneys are so essential. Workplace Injury Lawyer in Sterling Heights, Michigan-based Cochran, Kroll & Associates, P.C., can help you if you are injured on the job.
If you feel you deserve more compensation than you may be getting from insurance companies, an experienced Workplace Injury Lawyer in Sterling Heights can help build your case and meet all claim deadlines.
An essential step in assessing whether your claim has merit is determining if your employer responded appropriately to your accident.
Your company’s response officially began the instant you were injured. Many businesses, particularly those in more dangerous industries, should have a 24-hour response plan for accidents and injuries. This includes immediate medical attention, first aid, and transportation to the hospital.
They should also follow-up after the injury with work authorization forms to take to the doctor, and an incident report filed to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.
Furthermore, they should support your recovery, regardless of how long it takes, and they cannot fire you for filing a Workers’ Compensation claim.
Also, consider whether you are welcomed back. Is the employer able to save an appropriate position for you? If they’re not offering a job that works within your medical restrictions, it may be time to get legal assistance.
It’s always worthwhile to get a qualified lawyer to help with your case. Considering the vast array of things you have to consider for a personal injury claim or workers’ compensation claim, expert guidance can be invaluable.
Attorneys with experience in this area can show you the proper procedures and what evidence to gather. They also act as your strongest advocate and do as much as possible to ensure you receive the compensation you are entitled to and deserve. More importantly, they are a neutral third party that can objectively examine your case’s cold hard facts.
A case can require information from local insurance companies, doctors, other lawyers, and the police. An established and experienced personal injury lawyer has the network needed to compile the information required for the strongest case possible.
