Don’t Let Your Employer Push You Around
Have you been seriously injured on the job? Was someone’s negligence the cause? Did you suffer a workplace accident as a result of unsafe employment conditions?
Regardless of the circumstances, you should qualify for workers’ compensation after an on-the-job injury. You do not have to prove that your employer was negligent. However, you may also be able to recover an additional monetary award by filing a third-party liability claim against a negligent individual or company other than your employer.
I Was Hurt At Work; What Should I Do?
Many companies have a willful disregard for employee or public safety and create unsafe physical or emotional employment environments that can lead to a serious injury through no fault of your own. Whether your employer was negligent or not, you should be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. You may also be able to bring a claim against a third party such as a subcontractor or an equipment manufacturer.
Beware the trap of being enticed to go it alone as you seek financial relief: Human resource departments or your insurance company may talk sympathetically about your injury and how they will pay your bills. However, they may also seek to have you sign away your rights as soon as possible to erase their responsibility for further compensation should future medical care be required. Don’t let sweet-talk lull you into signing away your right to a lawful pursuit of justice.
