A Few Tips for Injured Workers
Attorney Brian Greenspoon can offer insight into the complicated laws and processes surrounding Workers’ Compensation. Below are some important steps to take for those injured at work.
Check the local laws. Each state operates its Workers’ Compensation program. The laws, most forms, and procedures to follow should be easily accessible via the state’s website. Awareness of the law can prevent employees from losing out on any of the benefits to which they are entitled.
Inform the employer of an injury immediately. Many states limit the amount of time workers have to report an injury. Rather than waiting to see if an injury is serious before addressing it, employees should act quickly to ensure they do not exceed any possible time limits.
Contact a lawyer. A competent legal professional can guide clients through the process. Attorneys like Brian Greenspoon have recovered significant compensation for those injured at work. They can help clarify the process and advocate the interests of the client.
