Work Injury Lawyers: Fighting for Workers & Their Families
Whether your overexertion or joint injury was caused by repetitive lifting, carrying items, or even due to an unexpected accident such as a slip and fall, you may be experiencing a lot of pain and problems with strength and mobility in the affected area of your body. Because such injuries develop over time, they can be tough to detect until they become so bothersome that you know something is very wrong. That is why is it essential to report any kind of pain to your supervisor right away, as well as demand medical attention.
If you do report an overexertion injury, insurance company doctors may try to say that your injury is not work-related or that it stemmed from a preexisting condition. Some people accept this misdiagnosis and do not make the effort to speak to an attorney. They don’t realize there are various alternatives, like being seen by a different doctor for a second opinion. They can work with a physician who looks out for injured employees and not the employer’s insurance deep pockets.
The best way to ensure the full protection of your rights after any work-related injury is to involve a competent attorney as soon as possible. Our workers’ compensation lawyers at Morales & Cerino are here to help you. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your overexertion injuries and how to recover maximum benefits.
