There’s no telling what injury might sideline you on the job. A slip and fall or an injury because of faulty office equipment can cause major injuries that keep you out of work for weeks, if not month’s on end. What do you do to take care of your family and pay your bills when you can’t work? Kentons Law Office can help you in claim filing when a workplace injury has sidelined you.
Why Hire a Lawyer?
No two workplace claims are alike. If your co-worker hurts you, you might be entitled to some compensation, even if your employer isn’t directly at fault. If you fall off a broken office chair, or if the conditions of your work environment put you in peril, causing an injury, your employer is responsible for these and other damages you may be entitled to.
Kentons Law Office will work on your behalf, to ensure you receive the compensation that is owed to you while you’re hurt. No matter how long you can’t work, your employer has to pay your wages (or a portion of your wages) to compensate for that. Most workers aren’t aware of their rights, but a licensed attorney is.
Don’t Let Your Employer Frighten You –
A common tactic employers play is trying to frighten employees. They’ll say the employee might get fired if they file an injury claim. Or, the employer will claim the employee might lose their position/get demoted if they file a workplace claim.
This is an illegal practice by your employer. Most employees, however, out of fear of losing their job, will not fight back. Instead of trying to reason with your employer on your own, allow a licensed specialized team of workplace compensation attorneys to do the job for you instead. They’ll not only fight for the damages you’re owed, but also work to ensure your employer isn’t threatening you illegally, because they don’t want you to file a claim.
If you’re hurt on the job, you do have rights, and your employer can’t fire you or demote you in the event you choose to file a workers’ compensation claim. Don’t let them tell you otherwise. If you’re unsure of what to do, whether to file, or have questions about what you are entitled to if you are hurt on the job, the team at Kentons Law Office is ready to answer your questions and assist you in filing your claim when you’re prepared to do so.
