Your injury may be severe enough that you must go to the hospital at once by ambulance. You may not remember much while you are trying to deal with pain and fear about what has happened to you. Once you get to the hospital and are taken care, including getting some rest, you will need to think back on the event about what happened.
Write down the date and time when you were injured, what was happening around you and why you were injured. Then go through the following list to help jog your memory.
Even little things can be very important when you think back on the time when the accident happened. Be patient with yourself as you recover from your ordeal. What you may not remember right now, may come back to you in a day or so. This is a tough time for injured workers when they are trying to stabilize pain and worry, but there is help available to you when you need it.
If you think that machinery was not properly maintained in a satisfactory and safe way, it may help you to connect with a worker’s compensation lawyer. It can be an informal meeting to tell everything you remember about the accident now, in case there is a problem with the employer.
There are occasions when an employer may claim that the accident was due to your negligence and mishandling of the equipment. Yet, you are sure you did everything right and that it was not your fault. So, it is important to get all the facts down on a piece of paper, as a starting point in helping yourself through to recovery.
While a worker’s compensation attorney is essential in getting your claim to benefits started, you may also need another type of attorney too if things go wrong between you and your employer, and there is a case of criminal negligence in the workplace. Your employer may blame you but if you have enough facts to back you up, you can make your case and succeed, with legal help.
