If you're injured in the course of performing your job duties, workers' compensation insurance is there to help pay for your medical expenses and lost wages, but filing a claim involves navigating a complex process that many find extremely difficult without professional help. Mark O. Grater Attorney at Law, a workers' compensation and personal injury attorney in Groton, CT, has some tips for ensuring that you get the compensation you deserve.
- Report Your Injury Immediately: In most states, you have only a very short window of time to report your injury. Of course, this applies mostly to accident-related injuries. If you're filing a claim for a repetitive-use injury, you can seek medical attention first.
- Seek Medical Attention: Without evidence from your medical professional, it's very unlikely that your claim will be accepted. Have a doctor look at your injury as soon as possible so they can prove that your injury is work-related.
