If you have ever been injured on the job, you know how frustrating it can be. This is especially the case if you have an employer who is trying everything they possibly can to get out of having to take care of your medical bills. Of course, they don’t want to pay for these bills out of their own pocket. However, you shouldn’t have to take care of them either. It is the legal responsibility of your employer to take care of this. Hopefully, they have workers compensation insurance. If not, it will be up to you to contact an attorney.
As you can see, you are going to need an attorney who understands the Utah Worker’s Compensation laws. Someone who is going to be there for you no matter how difficult things may get. Someone who is going to stand up to your employer and hopefully convince them to do the right thing. If your employer is not willing to cooperate, the only other option will be to contact the Law Office of Davis and Sanchez.
Unfortunately, workplace injuries are becoming way too common. Because of this, you need to hold your employer accountable for your injuries. Employers need to be more careful with having equipment inspected. They also need to be better at providing you with the proper safety gear. If you do end up needing medical attention, this is something that your employer will be responsible to pay for. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that your health insurance is going to take care of it. They may refuse payment, which will leave you responsible.
As you can see, there is more to this than what you understand. Don’t talk with anyone until you have spoken with your Utah Worker’s Compensation lawyer. This way, you can talk with someone who understands your case. Someone who is going to explain the workers compensation laws to you so that you can decide how you would like to react. If you do decide to press charges against your employer, your attorney can get started with the paperwork whenever you are ready.
