Mistakes to Avoid When You’ve Experienced a Workplace Injury

Whether it is a slip and fall at work, a physical injury on the job, or some other incident, your employer has the responsibility to make sure your workplace is safe. When you get hurt on the job, the workers’ compensation insurance should kick in and cover your medical bills and lost wages. During these situations, it is best to avoid certain mistakes.

1. Don’t Be Pressured to Go Back to Work Too Soon.

If either your employer or the workers’ compensation insurer is pressuring you to get back to work when you know you need more time, it is always best to reach out to one of the great WCB lawyers BC has to offer. There’s no reason for you to have to return to work and suffer or risk making your injuries worse because the insurer does not want to continue to pay you for your time off of work.

2. Don’t Say the Accident Was Your Fault.

You have to be very careful about what you say during your interactions with your employer and the workers’ compensation insurer. If you state that you were at fault for the accident, the insurer could very well refuse to pay you what they owe you for your time off of work and your medical bills.

3. Don’t Neglect Speaking to a Workplace Injury Lawyer.

Even if things seem to be going smoothly after you initially file a workplace injury claim, it never hurts to get some good advice from a lawyer who specializes in workers compensation BC. The lawyer can help you out by ensuring you get treated fairly from start to finish. If anything is amiss, they will step in and help you file a legal suit against the insurer.
