If you were involved in an accident at work, you might be wondering what your options are. Typically, you should be able to make a legal claim or apply for worker’s compensation. Whether this will be provided will depend on the accident and the location you were working. You must also make sure that you do not admit blame for the accident. If you do this, it’s very unlikely that you will win an accidental injury claim.
Complete An Accurate Account
After the accident occurs, it is advisable that you do take down all the information about the accident that you can remember. You may want to speak to any witnesses who saw the accident take place. This will be important if you do end up talking to a lawyer about a claim.
Notify Your Employer
While compensation may not come from your employer, you must still notify them that an accident took place. At this point, they may assess your situation and decide on an appropriate course of action. They may offer worker’s compensation at this stage.
Speak To A Lawyer
If you do not expect to receive workers compensation from your employer, you should contact an attorney. The attorney should specialize in accidental injury cases. They will be able to talk you through some of the options that may be available to you. Depending on your case, they may proceed with an accidental injury claim.
