Steps to take if you’ve been injured at work in

Van Nuys, CA

When you suffer pain from an injury at work, you want to ensure you’re taking the proper steps to protect your rights to compensation. The things you do after your accident could help you through the complex process and prevent insurance adjusters from overlooking your claim. Here are the various steps you must take after a workplace accident.

  • Either report the accident to your employer yourself or have someone close to you do it. The report should include vital information such as date and time of the incident, where it happened, how it happened, and who was there.
  • Seek medical attention. You’ll either see the doctor chosen by your employer’s insurance provider or a medical professional of your choice. Most often, it’s the insurance company’s doctor. 
  • File a claim with the help of a lawyer. You can ask your employer for the paperwork to file, but a lawyer can help you ensure accuracy and factual information to strengthen your claim.

You could go through some of the process on your own, but know that you run the risk of losing out on vital benefits that you would need when you’re unable to work because of your workplace injury. 

Why should you hire a Workers’ Comp attorney?

When you file a workers’ compensation claim, you are seeking numerous benefits, including compensation for medical bills, hospital stays, doctor visits, physical rehabilitation, lost wages, and more. The pain you endure from your injury can make it difficult for you to earn an income, let alone deal with insurance companies who don’t want you to obtain a settlement or weekly benefits. Working with a workers’ comp lawyer can help protect your rights under California workers’ compensation law. 

A lawyer provides you insight into how you may move forward with a claim while protecting you from the various tactics used by insurance companies to wrongfully deny claims. Insurance companies are supposed to help, but they prioritize profits over well-being, and a lawyer helps level the playing field.
