Windsor Workers' Comp Attorney
If you are injured on the job, there are a few important things you should know. A Windsor workers' comp attorney from our law firm can get involved immediately to advise you on your legal rights, your options and the best steps to take in order to seek the full workers' compensation benefits to which you may be entitled. We welcome you to call our offices to schedule a free, confidential review of your work accident, injury or exposure case.
After you are injured at work, it is crucial to take two immediate steps:
- Seek medical attention - if you have experienced a severe or life-threatening injury, call 911 or go to the nearest emergency room to seek medical care. If your injuries are not catastrophic, inform your supervisor or manager and he or she should be able to tell you if there is a designated medical provider you should see (this will help ensure that all of your medical expenses are covered by your workers' comp claim).
- Inform your employer - you must inform your employer within 4 days of your injury, in writing. Verbally informing your manager is not enough; you must inform your employer in writing of the incident. Failure to inform your employer may result in loss of compensation.
