Workplace Accident Attorney
Workplace injuries are all-too-common, and often employers are able to keep operating without paying any compensation or even providing proper medical treatment. Lots of times, workplace injuries are purely accidental, in which case you should be entitled to workers compensation. However, if your employer has exposed you to unreasonably dangerous working conditions, then you can bring a claim directly against your employer. Sometimes a third party other than the employer or other employees has caused a workplace injury. In this case, you might be able to file a lawsuit against the responsible party even while receiving workers compensation payments. The workplace lawyers at Parkman White, LLP will help make sure that you are taken care of in the event of a workplace injury, and will investigate and pursue all potential claims.
Knowing what to do in the event of a workplace injury is a very important factor in terms of whether you will be able to recover your losses. You should see a doctor immediately if injured at the workplace, since most employers will require medical documentation before paying any compensation. You should also report the injury to your employer immediately, in order to eliminate the ability of the employer to claim that the injury was not work-related. It is very important that you retain an attorney with experience in work-related injury law. Also, do not talk about the incident to any company representatives without your attorney present.
