All it takes is one time. One time...one time when a task you've done for your job hundreds...thousands of times without incident becomes a life-altering experience.
"I never thought that could have happened" is something we hear often from our clients. Skilled workers who are shocked when an accident occurs...especially when it occurs during a task they're so familiar with.
Just a few weeks ago, an employee at a big box store was organizing the shopping carts. Every day for months, he had done this relatively easy (to him at least) task. To put the carts away, it required him walking in front of the line of carts, and pulling them down a hallway. On this one instance though, the carts accelerated and knocked him down, and a few rolled over him, causing both minor and major injury.
This was just a routine part of his job...but it only took one time for an accident to happen.
If you have been injured while on the job or doing a job-related activity, you are eligible for workers' compensation. It's imperative that you know your company's policy, but as we've seen far too often, sometimes those policies are filled with exceptions that have been put in to try and keep your employer from being liable.
We fight for you, the worker. You have rights, and it's our priority to make sure you know your rights, and that you are compensated correctly. You've worked too hard not get what you have rightfully earned.
