What Rights Do I Have if I Have Been Hurt at Work?
If you have been hurt while on the job you are entitled to receive medical treatment and care and to be compensated for what you have lost. Your rights as an injured worker include:
- The right to report the accident, free from harassment or penalty.
- The right to file a claim for reimbursement in either a state court setting or within the worker’s compensation system.
- The right to go back to work and earn a living, if you are cleared to do so by your physician.
These rights are important and you should take every step to protect them by partnering with a knowledgeable work injury attorney. A qualified attorney will make sure the accident was properly reported, that your claim is filed timely and correctly, and will aggressively pursue the reimbursement you are entitled to receive.
