We have spoken with so many people who suffered serious injuries at work, but reported they were not getting much compensation from the employer. This is a problem that is far too common in the United States, and other parts of the world. If you are in the United States and you feel as though you are being shafted by your employer, we want you to know that you do have a way to get justice. What you are going to want to do is consult with a work related injury lawyer Hillsboro or as soon as possible.
If you begin your conversation with an attorney shortly after the accident, then you are in a good place to get compensation. What we would advise is that you do what your company says with regards to medical treatment and not coming back to work. If they give you a specific doctor or hospital where they want you to go, that is where you should go. Make sure you have records of the incident and the treatment you are getting at a medical facility. Keep all these documents, and make sure you show them to your attorney.
By having such a lawyer on your side, things will be a lot easier. Your attorney will know precisely how much of a case you have. They can tell you whether you have a bad or a good chance of getting compensation from your employer. And they can even give you a ballpark about how much you can expect to get. This is so helpful for most people, because most of us have no idea how this process works. The good news is that your lawyer will handle everything moving forward, and you can just worry about getting better and eventually going back to your job!
