Personal Injuries: Basic Knowledge For You

Has Faulty Equipment At Work Caused You A Severe Injury And Inability To Work? Get Legal Help Right Now

If a faulty machine at work caused you a severe injury that is now going to alter the rest of your life, you need to consult with a legal professional before you settle anything with your employer. You don't want to trust that they have your best interest in mind, and while recovering from a severe injury you may not know what the future is going to bring.

The lawyer will need the facts of the case and can work with you to get the best outcome while you are healing. Consult an injury and workers compensation attorney about these things.

Case Facts and Evidence

Go over the facts and evidence from your case. If there is video surveillance or monitoring in the area where you got injured, let the lawyer know quickly so they can try to get the recording. This may require the lawyer to file a court order for the request, and you want this done before they have a chance to erase the recording to get rid of it.

Current Financial Benefits

You have bills that are still coming in now. Your lawyer will reach out to your company to make sure that you start receiving the workers compensation benefits that are necessary, so you don't fall behind on your bills. You shouldn't have to worry about money because your company is trying to hold out paying you the supplemental compensation when you can't earn wages, due to a terrible injury that happened because of their faulty equipment.

Long Term Settlement Options

The lawyer will look at your evidence and case and may suggest going for a settlement. This would indicate you aren't returning to work for years, if ever, because of how bad the injuries are.

You will need a settlement so that you aren't struggling with money for the rest of your life. Once the lawyer figures out the amount, based on medical expenses, lost wages and future needs, they will mediate and negotiate with the employer. If the employer is not willing to cooperate the case goes to court.

If your employer had a machine that wasn't safe for all to be using on the floor, and you were the victim because of this, you want to talk with your lawyer as quickly as you can. They will do the work for your case and get you the money you need while you heal.
