Workplace Injury McKinney FBWhen you have suffered workplace injuries in Dallas, it can be a very scary and uncertain time. Your entire family may depend on you working.

Joe Knows Law can assist you with your workplace injuries in Dallas. Follow these steps if you have been injured in the workplace.

Write It Down

Write down exactly what occurred when you were injured. Note the time, day, and any witnesses that were present. Discuss what you were doing at the time of the injury, the weather, and the condition of the area you were working in. Talk about any safety precautions you took prior to the injury, and any steps you took after to mitigate the damages inflicted.

Gather Bills

Keep all your medical bills, medication costs, and other bills in a safe spot. You will want to be able to have them handy when calculating your damages.

Call an Attorney

Research attorneys in your area that deal with workers compensation and personal injury. Most attorneys offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case. Bring important documents with you and write down any questions prior to the meeting so you remember them. A good attorney will listen to what occurred, look at your documents, and then propose a strategy moving forward. It is important that you do not wait to contact an attorney, as there is a strict time limit for reporting workplace injuries. Failing to report within the time limitations can result in you not being able to recover for your injury.
