After being injured in a workplace accident, the first thing that may go through your mind is what happens now? This is something you’ve probably never prepared for and now you’re worried about the future. This is an understandable reaction and we’re here to help you out!
Your first priority is to get medical attention, especially if your injuries are serious. Once your injuries are taken care of, your next step is to notify your supervisor as soon as possible. This is important for your benefits to be properly reported — notifying your employer is a requirement of New Jersey’s workers’ compensation provisions.
After notifying your employer, you may want to hire an experienced workers’ compensation attorney to help you with your claim. Much like insurance companies after a car accident, workers’ compensation claim handlers want to give you the least amount of money possible for your accident. That’s why it’s important to find someone who knows your rights and will help ensure you get the compensation you deserve.
When hiring a workers’ compensation attorney like Anthony Carbone, that lawyer steps in to fill that role but you have to call to get the help they have to offer. There are too many requirements and details to try to manage on your own and the stakes are too high when you’re talking about your wellbeing and financial security to not have someone on your side. Before filing your claim, contact the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone today. We will give you the help that you need.
