Most people spend the majority of their lives at work. This is a fact of life. Accidents happen in the work place, no matter how safely people work, but it isn’t always an accident that causes an injury. Many jobs involve repetitive motion, which can cause injury over time. Exposure to certain work conditions over time, can also result in illness and disability. Often, workers may have arthritis, or degenerative disc disease, and it never bothers them until something happens at work to make it symptomatic. Regardless of the cause of the work injury, when you are injured at work and lose time from your job, it is difficult to understand the mechanics of how the workers’ compensation system operates, and who to trust for advice and help.
If you are injured at work, it is important to have an attorney who can guide you through the case, and make sure that you are being protected under the law. In these cases, it is often the injured employee versus a multimillion dollar insurance company and its lawyers. You need someone to look out for your interests and balance the scales.
