After a Workplace Accident
To give yourself the best chance at receiving compensation, it is important to follow these steps after a work-related injury:
- Report the accident. After an accident happens at work, report it to your boss or human resources representative. Even if you are not sure that you have been injured, reporting the incident ensures it is recorded.
- Seek medical attention. You should always see a doctor after a workplace accident. If you were not seriously injured, ask your employer if there is a certain doctor you should see whose care is covered by their insurance policy. Seeking medical attention immediately after an accident helps establish medical records that will be important for your workers' compensation claim.
- Tell your employer you were injured. If it was obvious that you were injured at the time of the accident, you may have already done this. However, if it was not clear that you were hurt at the time of the accident and have since confirmed with your doctor that you did sustain an injury, it is important to inform your employer so they can file a claim on your behalf.
- Work with an attorney. Having a Waco workers’ compensation lawyer on your side can be invaluable. Unfortunately, your employer and its insurance company are not always focused on your best interests after an accident. They may try to get you to settle for less compensation than you deserve, or deny your claim altogether.
At Milam & Fanning, PLLC, we are passionate about helping injured workers secure the compensation they deserve. We can guide you through the process of seeking workers' compensation and ensure you are getting a fair outcome.
