Injured on the Job: Now what?
In the U.S. more than 4.1 million workers suffer a serious job-related injury or illness each year. If you or someone you care about is the victim of a work accident, there are a few steps to follow to ensure the proper action is taken.
Hire a lawyer
The days, weeks, and months following an accident that occurred at work not only cause a strain on you physically, but financially as well. Being unable to work due to injury causes a heavy burden of stress on many victims and they are left wondering how they will pay their bills, mortgage, and even day-to-day expenses. These looming fears are why hiring a lawyer as soon as possible is extremely important.
Our team at Schulz Stephenson Law has over 25 years of experience in working cases that involve a work accident. We will begin working on your case immediately and diligently so that proper compensation is awarded as soon as possible and life can get back to normal. For workplace injury victims, we work on a contingency basis meaning you will only be responsible for payment unless compensation is obtained for you.
Meet with your lawyer to discuss a plan of action
Filing claims for workers’ compensation can be complicated and tedious for someone to do on their own. Our experienced lawyers will assist in all parts of the case beginning with the initial file for workers’ compensation and throughout any appeals. We work directly with our clients throughout the entire process keeping them informed and up to date on all aspects of the case or if any changes or updates have been made.
