We all know that to err is human and, as a result, accidents are a part of life. Dealing with the outcomes of an accident can be costly, time-consuming, and frustrating. When those accidents occur in the workplace, the burden of managing those outcomes does not fall solely on the shoulders of the individual affected. If you or a family member have been injured, suffered permanent disability, or even killed on the job, there are steps you can take to receive support from the employer. These steps can feel overwhelming while simultaneously dealing with the immediate fall out from an accident, such as medical care, and may lead to more questions than answers. How should I be compensated? Does it fall under workplace compensation? Will my employer dismiss my claim? Should I file a personal injury claim? Do I need legal representation?
The legal team at Mayberry Law can answer these questions and more. With extensive experience with workplace law and over four decades of experience, our team can help you navigate what steps to take now. Contact us today to schedule your free consultation.
I Was Injured on The Job, Now What?
As with any accident, the most important step to take immediately afterward is to care for yourself. Seek the initial medical care that you need, and make sure to document the process. Once you have sought that initial medical care, and documented all that occurred, we recommend the following steps:
- Document the accident
As much as possible, try to recall and record the accident exactly as it occurred. Over time details and the order of events can become muddled. You want to have accurate and specific information to support any claims, so be sure to keep documentation and take notes of events that seem relevant.
- Keep your receipts
Tracking your expenses associated with the accident, from doctor’s visits to loss of work are important in understanding the impact the accident has had on you financially.
- Contact an attorney
A free consultation with a member of the Mayberry Law team who has experience in accident law can help you determine how to proceed, and what legal steps should be taken. Call us at 310-570-6410 today for a free consultation.
In the state of California there is a limited amount of time allowed within which you can file a claim. At Mayberry Law, we recommend reaching out to legal counsel immediately regarding your workplace accident claim in an effort to prevent the statute of limitations from barring your claim from being filed.
