What if I’m forced to work with an injury?

Work Comp Attorney St. Louis, MO

Employers that care little for their employees health are going to push them to return to work as quickly as possible, or be fired. They will refer you to company friendly doctors or physicians who help them protect their bottom line. This is a bogus and underhanded tactic that larger employers use to skirt your workers’ compensation rights and recovery. Our Work Comp Lawyers in St. Louis have fought these types of claims before, and we always hold companies responsible for the injuries they cause to their employees. If you’ve been injured, our Work Comp Firm advises that you take these steps to secure your recovery and defend your claim:

  • Document your Injuries – Talk to your doctor, or a third party doctor. Multiple opinions will confirm your injuries, and set what is needed for your recovery.
  • Document All conversations with your Employer – Documentation on any conversation you have regarding your injuries is incredibly important. Never have a conversation that isn’t recorded in writing. The best way to do this is through email. A paper trail can help secure your claim.
  • Document the Business’ Practices Regarding Injury – Your employer’s HR department should have a set method for dealing with work injuries. You can cross-examine the care you received compared to what the business’ practices say you are owed.
  • Document the Hours you are required to work while injured, and the tasks you are asked to do – You should never work when you are injured. If your employer forced you to work or lose your job, notate what you are required to do, the hours, the task, and who the supervisor was.

The actions you take immediately following a workplace injury, and how your employer treats you can substantiate your claim. If your employer has treated your injuries seriously, and all of your medical care and finances are being met, then you may not need a lawyer. Not all businesses do right by their employees, and if your injuries aren’t being taken seriously, or your employer is trying to fire you to weaken your Workers’ Compensation Claim, contact our Work Comp Lawyers in St. Louis immediately.
