Getting injured at work can set you back weeks, months, or even years. You may not be able to return to your job for a long time or do the same job anymore. In the worst-case scenario, you might not be able to work at all after you get injured.
It’s critical to connect with a New York attorney after you get injured at work so that you can get the benefits you deserve. Here’s how they can help.
They’ll Help You Find Evidence of Your Injury
When you get injured at work, you need to prove that your workplace was responsible for your injury. It’s a good idea to take photos, videos, and witness statements so that you have evidence of your injury. If you didn’t do that, your attorney can go back and help you gather the evidence you need for your case.
They’ll Assist You With Filing Forms
You will need to report your injury to your employer and get a copy of your report in writing. Your attorney can help you do this if you haven’t done it already. If you’re getting workers’ comp, they can assist you with all those forms as well.
They’ll Help You Navigate the Workers’ Comp Process
Workers’ comp can present some issues. For instance, what if you need longer to recover? Or, what if you don’t like your doctor? Your attorney can help you navigate workers’ comp as well as advocate for you so you get the care and benefits you need for as long as you need them.
