Suffering an injury while working could have a devastating impact on you and your family. If you are unable to work and/or require medical treatment, life becomes extremely challenging. The hope is that the Workers’ Compensation insurance carrier will do the right thing and take care of your needs. Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
At Martin Law, our advice is to always contact us as soon as you suffer an injury. There are timelines relating to reporting an injury. In addition, there are certain situations where you have to treat with the doctor of your Employer’s choosing for the first ninety (90) days. The Workers’ Compensation system is complicated and you need someone to not only guide you through the process but to ensure that your well-being along with your family’s future is in the best hands.
Our job as attorneys is to help reduce the stress you are dealing with so you can focus on your recovery. Always remember that your Employer and its Workers’ Compensation carrier have access to an attorney as soon as an injury occurs, which means that they are getting guidance on how to help protect their interests. The question you need to ask yourself, as the injured worker, is why shouldn’t you have the same advantage as the insurance carrier?
Contact Martin Law as soon as your injury occurs so we can ensure that no one can take advantage of you.
