When Should I Talk to an Attorney About My Injury?
Attorneys can help with a wide variety of injury cases. A personal injury attorney may be able to help if you have been injured at work, by a doctor, by an ill-meaning assailant, because of the negligence of another person, or for any other reason. Serious injuries typically result in large medical costs, significant time out of work, long-term physical damage, and other lasting negative effects for the injured party. If you have suffered a serious injury that was not your fault, you may be able to file a personal injury suit in order to hold the responsible parties accountable and receive the compensation you need to cover your costs and get back to your life.
Workers Injured on the Job
If you have been injured on the job, it is especially important that you speak to a personal injury lawyer before accepting workers’ compensation benefits. In many cases, employers can provide workers with some financial help to cover immediate injury-related costs, but workers’ comp is typically not substantial enough to cover the cost of a serious injury. Be advised that once you access workers’ comp benefits and payments, you are no longer legally permitted to file a personal injury lawsuit, even if the amount of workers’ comp you receive ultimately falls short of what you require. If you have been injured on the job, get in touch with an experienced Philadelphia personal injury attorney immediately.
