What Should I Do If I Injured My Shoulder At Work?
There are three things you will want to do immediately after your Florida workplace shoulder injury, including:
- Report your injury to your manager or your employer directly. It is not only good to verbally report your workplace accident and injury, but it is in your best interest to make a written report as well for the record.
- Seek medical attention as soon as you can following your workplace shoulder injury. Let the doctor know when and where your shoulder injury occurred and what you are experiencing. You most likely will be sent to an employer authorized provider. Just make sure that the doctor is looking out for your interests so that you receive the best medical care.
- Contact a skilled Florida workers’ compensation lawyer to make sure you are receiving all the medical benefits as well as income benefits you are entitled to under the law. Also, having a workers’ comp attorney on your side is beneficial if the insurance company disputes that your shoulder injury wasn’t a result of work. Unfortunately, insurance companies may try to blame you and try to deny your benefits. This is why it is critical to take these above steps for your protection.
