Whether you’re trying to stay prepared in the event that a workplace injury occurs or if you’re wondering if you have a workers’ compensation case and want to know if your situation is common, there is a lot that goes into workers’ compensation. In this infographic, we highlight the top 10 most disabling U.S. workplace injuries and what it means for you if you’ve sustained one.
REMEMBER! Just because you don’t see your situation on this list doesn’t mean you don’t have a case! We see plenty of cases that don’t fall into these categories, as well as cases that do.
If you’ve been injured on the job, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Many times injuries can go unnoticed and if you wait it might be too late. Next, check and see if you have a case. If you’re seriously injured and are going to the hospital, call us at (561) 948-6104 and we’ll come and make sure you get the treatment you need, as well as if you have a case or not. That’s right…we’ll come to the hospital and make sure you’re alright.
Always check with your workers’ compensation attorney before you tell yourself you don’t have a case. Even if your employer tries to tell you that you don’t have a case if you were injured while working you might qualify for more than you think.
Again, just because you’ve been injured on the job in a way not highlighted above, you could still have a case and need a workers’ compensation attorney. If you think you have a case for any injury you’ve sustained while on the job, please contact us at (561) 623-3681. We’ll walk you through the process of filing a case, and doing our due diligence to getting you what you’re entitled to.
