Building Workers’ Compensation Claims
If you were injured on the job or suffered a work-related illness, then you could be wondering how you’re going to pay your medical bills, who’s going to cover your lost wages, and how you’re going to support your family.
Workers’ compensation laws protect employees who have been injured on the job, but the process of collecting benefits isn’t always simple, and it doesn’t always happen quickly. That’s where the Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware workers’ compensation attorneys at Lundy Law can help.
What to Do After a Job Injury
Employees who wait too long to report their work-related illnesses and injuries sometimes find that the statute of limitations has expired, or crucial evidence is gone forever when they need to file a claim. At Lundy Law, we encourage all of our clients to act quickly and to follow these steps to protect yourself after a work injury:
- Don’t hesitate to report your injury.Promptly report your injury or work-related illness to your employer or supervisor, and make sure to tell them you were hurt on the job, offering the date and location of the injury.
- Seek medical treatment.See a doctor, even if you don’t think you need to. Injuries can get worse over time, and your medical records can serve as valuable evidence if you need to file a claim.
- Don’t make assumptions.Even if you caused your own injury or had a preexisting condition, you may still be entitled to benefits.
Lundy Law’s strongest workers’ compensation cases are built on evidence that was quickly preserved. Don’t let another day pass without getting the legal help you need.
