So what happens if you get injured while at work? Unfortunately, it is easy for employees to get hurt, especially if physical activity and tools are involved. Your employer has a duty to provide you with workers’ compensation benefits; if not, it is your duty to contact an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to resolve this dispute and to provide you with the compensation that you need.
At The Stroud Law Firm, we understand how hard it can be to take time away from work. Your salary pays for your daughter’s horseback riding lessons, your son’s college tuition, your family’s groceries, the house mortgage, and more. When you are injured, you imagine a world where you cannot provide for yourself and your family. It can be terrifying.
Workers’ compensation—and time off to heal—should be provided to employees after they have been injured on a job—no matter how big or small the injury may seem. Injuries may be from a slip and fall, repetitive motion, faulty equipment, improper training, and more. If the injury is not handled or treated properly, you may face long-term effects.
Injury is not the only reason to receive workers’ compensation. If you have become ill, and need temporary time away, you should receive compensation. If you’ve been injured on the clock, your employer is responsible for providing you with time off of work, medical care costs, and salary.
If you’ve been injured at your workplace, contact a workers’ compensation lawyer at The Stroud Law Firm today to start receiving the benefits that you deserve. Call us today for a free consultation.
