Millions of employees are injured at work each year, sometimes resulting in serious injury and death. Employers carry worker’s compensation insurance to provide coverage for such injuries, but often insurance companies try to minimize the employee’s claim. It’s important that an injured person consult with a Modesto work injury attorney to receive the optimum compensation and benefits to which they are entitled.
If you’re injured at work, you should notify your employer of the injury as soon as possible. It’s important that you do this in writing and keep a copy for your records. Quickly reporting the claim to their insurance company will help ensure you receive benefits promptly. As with other injury claims, there are time limitations and filing requirements that must be met for you to pursue your rights.
A Modesto work injury attorney can assist you in pursuing your rights. Employees do not have to prove fault to receive coverage. Call the Imburg Law Firm today at (209) 577-6666 for a free consultation.
