The average American works 34.4 hours a week. Many Americans work even more than that to provide a proper livelihood for their families. All these hours at work means that being the victim of a workplace accident is all the more likely. This is why if you sustain an injury in your workplace accident, it is important to receive the proper compensation.
While the worker’s compensation payments may be low, there may be a negligent party involved that contributed to your workplace accident. Considering the fact that pain and suffering are not covered by worker’s compensation, having the ability to pursue a personal injury case is very important. Any injury sustained during work such as a slip and fall accident may also be a workplace accident.
Do not hesitate to contact an attorney about your workplace accident. In fact, the more time you wait, the weaker your case may become. This is because insurance companies will say your injury is stemming from something else and not the accident. Considering that time is of great importance with these cases, it may be in your best interest to seek counsel.
If you believe that you or your loved one’s workplace injury is the result of a negligent party, please call the Law Offices of John R. Vitola today.
