Should I contact a lawyer about my injury even if I don’t lose time from work?
Just the other day in North Carolina, someone called me up that had had a serious injury, but the employer was still allowing them to work so that the employer wouldn’t have lost time. That person wanted to know why they need an attorney, if they’re still working. I had to explain to them that there’s a lot of pitfalls and a lot of bad things that can happen if you don’t know your rights. Even though you’re still working, you know you have a serious injury. If you have serious injury, at some point, the fallout from that injury is going to impact your ability to work. The employer is always looking to cut cost, even if it comes at your expense.
At some point, that employer or their workers’ comp carrier is going to make a move to cut you off of your benefits, whether you agree or not. This is why you need to contact an experienced Richmond County, NC workers’ compensation attorney, even if you’re still at work. That attorney can begin to start planning for the day when the employer turns on you. I know that your employer may well have been good friends with you before you were hurt, but now you’re hurt and you can’t do for them what they need you to do, so they’re going to look at you differently, as difficult as that may feel.
An attorney that’s working on the case from the beginning is going to know how to stay two steps ahead of your employer to protect your rights and your family. If you’re still at work, don’t hesitate to call our office and let us help and begin to plan for the future if you know that your body has truly been hurt. Call us.
