Your job is an important part of your life. Not only does your job mean you get a paycheck regularly, our jobs also give us a sense of our identity. You’re a teacher, or a custodian, a physician or an artist. But what happens when you are unable to perform your job due to an injury you sustained while working? You can feel a bit lost, and will notice your bills piling up quickly without a steady paycheck.
When you are injured at work, you are entitled to compensation through your company’s workers’ compensation program. This program is typically run through your company’s insurance provider and it can be notoriously overwhelming or frustrating. Most workers’ compensation insurance providers are not necessarily looking out for the employee’s best interest. Instead, they are looking to pay out as little of the company’s money as possible. This tactic makes the workers’ compensation process full of paperwork, investigation, and without a focus on the employee’s choice of medical provider.
If you have been hurt while at work, it is wise to retain legal services of your own. At Grewer Law, we have seen better results when employees seek to work with us during the process. Unfortunately, you cannot rely on your employer, or their workers’ compensation insurance company, to put your best interests at the forefront of all decisions. Our team will assure you and your needs are not forgotten during the process.
Follow your employer policies when reporting and following up with your injury. However, it is also wise to keep a copy of your medical reports and documentation as well. Our team can work with you to guide you through other good practices that will keep you healthy and cared for during your workers’ compensation journey.
