Have you been injured while on-the-job? Has it left you not being able to work?
If you are about to file a work injury claim, there are several steps to ensure your right to compensation. What you don’t need now is dealing with red tape.
To make sure you are successful on your claim, don’t make the following mistakes:
- Delaying medical treatment – It is important to see a doctor immediately.
Failing to comply with medical exam – The insurance company will
ask you to undergo a
medical exam. Go; even if you have seen your own personal doctor. Be prepared to visit
more than one doctor.
- Don’t need an attorney – It doesn’t hurt to talk to one for the help you may need
If you have been seriously injured and your claim involves a large sum of money, having an experienced personal injury attorney on your side is essential. If you end up in front of the worker’s compensation appeals board because of them denying your claim, you will need legal representation.
Even in a less serious claim, an attorney can help you keep your facts straight. Contact the San Bernardino personal injury law office of Welebir Tierney & Weck A Professional Law Corporation here to ensure you’re doing everything in a manner that gives you the best outcome.
