On-the-job accidents happen, but it is the responsibility of the employer to provide a safe working environment. Workers’ Compensation injuries can be the result of slipping and falling, chemical burns, hurt by equipment, poorly enforced safety regulations, or even the result of the actions of your fellow employees. There are three things you must know if you’ve suffered an on the job injury. One, report your accident to your employer as soon as possible. Even if you are not certain that you are injured, report your accident to protect your rights. Two, consult with a lawyer and learn about your rights as soon as possible. Three, never settle your case without first consulting with a lawyer. Don’t let your employer or their insurance company take advantage of you.
