The First Step...

The most common question we get is along the lines of "I've been injured at work...what do I do?"

The first step...is to report the injury.

Report the injury...no matter the severity. Whether it be major...a tweak...or just an ache...report...the...injury.

The longer time goes between the injury and when you report the injury, the more excuses your employer will try and come up with to deny your claim. 

You might think, well, the injury was super minor at the time...so I didn't report it. However, what happens when over time that "minor" injury develops into something much more serious. 

Think about it this way...you tweak your shoulder while lifting something. It doesn't require medical attention right away...but over time, you start feeling it more and more...to the point where you decide that yes, it's time to schedule a trip to the doctor.

Employers will try and argue that the injury happened at some other point during the time you were actually injured when you first reported it. 

So, if you can, report the injury immediately...but if that's not possible, do not fret...we at Loney & Schueller will fight vigorously for your rights. We'll fight to ensure you receive your full and rightful compensation.

We've seen too many neglectful employers try and deny hard-working individuals like yourself the compensation they're owed, and we won't stand for it.

If you've been injured, call Eric, Randy & Sarah at 515-225-4485.
