What Steps Should I Take After Being Injured At Work?
The first thing that you should do after being injured in a workplace accident and receiving any necessary medical attention is to report your injury to a supervisor and inform your employer of the incident. It is important to ensure that any information given to your employer is accurate, as this may affect any claims that you make.
After this first step, you may consider hiring an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to help guide you through the process of evaluating and filing your claim. Slaughter Law, PLLC, can offer legal guidance and representation throughout the entire process.
Helping Injured Workers Receive Their Due
Since 1993, Troy Slaughter has helped injured and disabled workers to recover the compensation that they are entitled to. The firm’s knowledge of the North Carolina Workers’ Compensation Act has helped hundreds of clients in the Wilmington area and beyond to receive due compensation after construction accidents, industrial accidents and other workplace injuries.
If you have received an injury at work, the firm’s attorneys can help to determine whether you have a claim. In certain cases where workers’ compensation might not apply, a personal injury claim may be more appropriate; your attorney will be able to advise you on the best way to proceed.
A lawyer will explain and guide you through the often complex and demanding process of making your workers’ compensation claim. They will also fight to ensure that you receive the appropriate medical treatment for your injury, and that any medical bills that you have incurred are paid.
