Personal injury at work


3 Steps to take after a personal injury at work

Injuries happen every day in the work place. If you have had a personal injury work, the things that you do immediately after the injury happened can affect whether or not you win your workman’s compensation case. Here are some tips that you can use to help you be successful in getting compensation.

Report your personal injury at work

The injury you had at work needs to be reported immediately to your supervisor or boss.  The person you work for needs to know about it so that they are able to enter the information into the report book of the company. Also, when you report the accident right away, it will show that you are really hurt. Waiting until later to report the accident and injury is going to look very suspicious.

Go to the doctor for your personal injury at work

When you have been injured at work, you need to make sure that you are checked out by a doctor. Your workplace might have a doctor that they use specifically for work related accidents. If not, it’s a good idea to go to the hospital. When you are being examined by the doctor, make sure that you tell the doctor that your injury is related to work.

This is going to let the doctor put the information that they get from the examination into the report that goes to your employer. Make sure that you collect the medical documents, receipts and bills that you have gotten from your doctor. This is going to show that you did go to the doctor and it will help your case.

Find a solicitor for your personal injury at work

Even though chances are that your employer will give you compensation for the injuries, there’s also a really good chance that they are going to try and pay you the bare minimum.  When you find a solicitor to represent you, you can be sure the solicitor is going to deal with the company’s adjuster and ensure that you’ll get the most compensation possible. He or she will also be sure your claim process is very simple for you through providing legal tips and advice. Your solicitor also is going to talk to the company’s insurance company if they need to and be sure that you’re fully compensated for your lost wages.
