You DO Have Benefits When Working
Whether you realize it or not, you have some the benefits of protection available to you which you earn by working. You may be working extremely hard in an occupation such as construction where you are paid hourly, paid in cash, or paid by the day, and this makes you think you have no benefits. WRONG.
Actually there are laws that protect you as a worker and this becomes critical if you are injured while working. It is therefore absolutely critical that you talk to an attorney if you sustain a personal injury while at work. Attorneys are trained, licensed and qualified to know the laws you probably don’t understand and they work to secure the benefits and protections you deserve, particularly if you are injured while working.
If You Are a Provider to Your Family
You work hard to provide for your family and if something happens to you at work leaving you unable to continue to provide, you have to talk to an attorney especially if you have sustained a personal injury while at work. Many working people are afraid they will get in trouble if they report an injury, or lose their job if they report an injury, or just hide an injury to be able to keep working. THIS IS WRONG. You are protected from these situations but you may not really understand your rights unless you talk to an attorney if you sustain a personal injury while at work.
Injuries don’t have to be major or catastrophic, and only a trained attorney can help you understand if you have actually sustained an injury at work or not. Injuries can range from hitting your thumb with a hammer to dropping a box on your foot, straining your back, or even psychological injuries you are so used to that you never stopped to realize you have actually been injured. Again, you may not know until you talk to an attorney. You work hard to provide, and you may be leaving much of you’ve earned to your employer or someone else if you don’t take the time to talk to an attorney if you suspect you have been injured.
What Your Boss May Not Tell You
The person or company you work for may not even be fully aware of the law and your rights when you’re injured, so often you will never hear about your rights or what is available to you. That is why you owe it to yourself and to the people you work so hard to provide for and take the extra step to talk to an attorney if you sustain a personal injury while at work.
If you don’t take that step to talk to an attorney, you may not be providing all that you can and all that you’ve already earned by working as you do. An attorney can make sure you are provided for medically, financially, legally, or in other ways that apply to your situation. Your boss may not know what you’re entitled to, or you may work for someone that does know but just won’t tell you, so you owe it to yourself to talk to an attorney if you sustain a personal injury while at work.
