Workplace accidents happen every day. OSHA refers to “The Fatal Four”: common, often fatal, accidents that happen in workplaces. These “Fatal Four” are:
- Being struck by an object
- Being caught between equipment or other objects
From machine failure, to negligence in the environment, people get injured while trying to do their job. Protect your rights while dealing with your injury:
- Report an accident as soon as possible.
- Have a doctor examine the injury.
Measures To Take:
Document each step you take and keep your documents on file. You are entitled to copies of any paperwork filed by your employer with Workers Compensation. If complications occur regarding either the injury or the filing of information, then consider other steps such a consulting with a workplace accident attorney. It is important to contact an attorney who is experienced in handling cases of workplace accident. They can help you with your questions about workplace conditions, covering your medical bills, and who is responsible for the accident and those bills. The first consultation is free and you can find answers to your questions.
