What Should You Do if You are Injured at Work During the Holidays?

While some people choose to take off from work during the holidays, others use the Holiday Season as an opportunity to work some extra hours or get some extra work done while their coworkers are out of the office. Unfortunately, work-related accidents can occur any time of year, and they often have a way of happening at the worst possible times.

If you have been injured in a workplace accident during the 2020 Holiday Season, here are some important facts you need to know about protecting your legal rights:

Fact #1: You Still Need to Report Your Injury to Your Employer on Time

Even though it is the Holiday Season, you still need to report your workplace injury on time. If you have a workers’ compensation claim, you must report your injury to your employer within 30 days under Florida law. However, while you may have up to 30 days, waiting any longer than necessary can be a costly mistake. In order to avoid unnecessary challenges with your workers’ compensation claim, you should file a report with your employer right away.

Fact #2: You Still Need to See a Doctor Right Away

In addition to reporting your injury promptly, it is also important that you see a doctor as soon as possible. If you are eligible for workers’ compensation, you may need to see a doctor who has been authorized by your employer or its insurance company. However, if you cannot get in touch with your HR representative, or if your employer’s doctor is not available during the holidays, you may be able to see a doctor of your choosing. A Fort Lauderdale workplace injury lawyer can help you decide where to go for treatment.

Fact #3: Filing for Workers’ Comp Might Not Be Your Only Option

Depending on how you got injured, filing for workers’ comp might not be your only option. In many cases, injured workers can file for workers’ comp and file a personal injury claim for additional compensation.

Fact #4: While You Need to Protect Your Rights, You Can (and Should) Make Time for Friends and Family

While it is important that you protect your legal rights, it is also important that you make time for your friends and loved ones. Once you do what you need to with regard to your workplace injury claim, give yourself some time to relax and enjoy the Holiday Season.  

Fact #5: You Can Hire a Fort Lauderdale Workplace Injury Lawyer to Handle Your Claim(s)

Even when you are not trying to find a way to enjoy the holidays, hiring a lawyer to handle your workplace injury claim can give you much-needed time and peace of mind. By hiring an experienced workplace injury lawyer, you can maximize your chances of securing a full recovery while also minimizing your role in the process.
