Do You Suffer From a Power Tool Injury? Contact a Personal Injury Lawyer
No one wants to get hurt on the job, but working with power tools can be dangerous. If you were to injure yourself at work when using a power tool, you might be due some workers compensation. You may also consider hiring a personal injury lawyer to help you file a claim.
Many factors could go into the situation:
Were you using the power tools correctly and in a safe manner?
If, for some reason, you were reckless and other workers around you witness the event, it might be determined that you were at fault.
How are the power tools maintained?
If the company has been negligent in maintaining the devices or hasn’t given you proper training, they could be even more liable than they would be otherwise.
If you were using the tools correctly and going about your everyday tasks at work, you are probably due worker’s compensation, at the very least. Most companies have insurance to cover such things, especially if their jobs are more often related to injuries.
However, it can be hard to determine how much you deserve.
How much are your pain and suffering worth?
Having a personal injury lawyer on your side can help you get what you deserve from the claim. The personal injury lawyer can go over the case from top to bottom, including the situation that led to the accident, the medical bills you have had to pay, possible lost wages, pain, suffering, etc.
If you were injured in a power tool accident at work, it’s important to get medical attention first. When you are stable and have the capabilities, call a lawyer to check into your rights and what you deserve.
