Injured at Work? Don’t Wait, Act.
In most cases, if you have not reported your injury or condition to your employer within 30 days you may lose all eligibility for health benefits. If this happens, you may be responsible for paying for all of your own doctors appointments, hospital bills, rehabilitation services, and not be eligible for lost wages. Even with an attorney, it becomes almost impossible to get the benefits you deserve if you wait too long to report your injury. If you have been hurt or have developed symptoms due to a workplace condition, inform your employer. Then contact Todd Butler and get an experienced trial lawyer on your side.
Back and Spine Injuries
Back and spine injuries are among the most common and most debilitating injuries in the workplace. These injuries may be the result of unavoidable accidents, dangerous working environments, inadequate training, or faulty machinery. However, under workers’ compensation, employees are not required to prove the reason that their injury occurred, as workers’ compensation is a no-fault system that compensates injured workers without regard to negligence or fault. The process of getting access to these benefits can be complex and often confusing on top of physically being disabled and unable to work. Act quickly, and get an experienced trial lawyer to help walk you through the steps to recovery and compensation.
