If you have been in a work related accident, or injured on the job – we are here to help. You may be wondering what to do next in order to protect yourself.
It is in your employer’s best interest to prevent you from getting you the justice you deserve. They will want to protect themselves from a lawsuit. Even if you have worked for the company for a long time, they will take advantage of opportunities to prove the injury was your fault or find other ways to weaken your potential claim.
Follow These Steps to Protect Your Best Interests after an On the Job Injury
When an accident on the job happens, the first few hours are critical for your potential claim. If you were injured in an industrial accident, contact us immediately for help. In the aftermath of these incidents, the company will want to minimize what happened and try to cover it up. Companies have legal teams already in place to help them fight against taking blame for what happened.
Investigators will be onsite immediately to collect evidence such as photos, interviews with witnesses and any other physical proof of what happened. Their goal in collecting information is to deny responsibility and claim zero negligence and zero fault. They are not there to uncover the whole truth; they just want to protect the best interests of the company.
Therefore, you need your own attorney to fight for your rights and to collect information and evidence that the company is responsible. Our team will collect interviews from your supervisor, witnesses and your coworkers to find out what happened.
Get Legal Help Immediately, Don’t Wait
When you have been injured, seeking medical attention is the first step. But you also need to contact a lawyer at the same time. As soon as an accident happens, your lawyer will be collecting evidence to prove they are not at fault. So you need a legal advocate to collect evidence that shows you were injured and it is the company’s negligence or faulty equipment that caused the accident.
Hiring an attorney immediately following an accident will ensure that you will get the compensation you deserve. If you are not able to call yourself, a family member or friend can call on your behalf.
