Every employer has a legal duty to provide safe working conditions for their employees. Though these are laws in place, accidents at work are extremely common. Employees are often not aware of the possible dangers in their work environment until it is too late and an accident occurs. Accidents happen in all types of work places, from construction sites to warehouses, factories and office environments.

Workers’ Compensation laws were created to protect you, the employee. It is extremely important to speak to an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer when you have been hurt at work. Our attorneys will fight to secure the medical care you need to recover during this trying time, as well as the compensation you deserve. A workplace injury can affect the lives of you and your loved ones for a long period of time. Extended recovery time can result in lost wages, and the financial impact can be devastating. Our staff is dedicated to making sure that does not happen to our clients.

What Should I Do If I’ve Been Hurt At Work?

If you have suffered an injury at work, the attorneys at Gentry & Ashton Law are ready to help you. We recommend you take the following steps:
  • REPORT YOUR INJURY. Often employees wait to report an incident because they assume they will recover quickly. By waiting, you give the employer the impression that what has happened to you is not serious. As soon as an accident happens, let your employer know.
  • SEE YOUR DOCTOR. Your employer should give you a referral to a medical clinic. It is very important that you take stock of every single thing that is wrong. These reports are imperative in getting you the medical care you need.
  • CALL AN ATTORNEY. Once you have seen the doctor, your next step is to call an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney. You will most likely have many questions: Who pays the medical bills? Do I still have a case if I am no longer working for the employer where I was injured? Do I still have a case even if there were no witnesses to my accident at work? Am I allowed to have a case if I am not legally in the United States? We can answer all of your questions and help put your mind at ease.
