Your employer will start the process to make sure their costs are covered concerning liability and asset loss. However, it is on you to ensure that your workers’ compensation claim is handled correctly. While your employer may wonder what your accident means for the company as a whole, you need to focus on how to recover from your injury and return to work.
To hold a person or company accountable away from home, you need to file a lawsuit in the state that has jurisdiction over them. If you return home without seeking help from an attorney first, you might again find yourself away from the help you need. Your employer may not understand this rule or have the resources to point you in the right direction, but a workers’ compensation does.
Just because your employer is not focused on your immediate needs doesn’t mean they have it out for you, their motivation is just different. They are driven by money while you are focused on recovery. You can’t put a price tag on restoring normalcy in your life after an accident, and that’s why you should call an attorney who is motivated to help you as soon as possible.
