If the working conditions in your office are not up to the mark, you may be susceptible to injury. According to the official statistics released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics in 2012, approximately 117 workers get injured in the U.S. for every 100,000 workers. It is the job of the employer to take care of the workers.
Regardless of the work that needs to be done, the employer is responsible for making sure that all safety measures are taken to prevent any sort of injury to the workers. Working in strenuous conditions is not easy. Apart from the work pressure itself, employees also have to make sure that they steer clear of any potential hazards.
Funnily enough, many of the workers who are injured on the job fail to get adequate compensation for their injuries. According to the law in Indiana, all employees deserve to be compensated financially for any injuries that occurred due to the negligence of the employer.
However, most employees are unable to afford the legal fees charged by most law firms in the country. As a result, most employees are unable to get their due compensation. Whether you work in a fully furnished office or a coal mine, there are work hazards in every workplace. There’s only a difference in severity.
Worker compensation is complicated. It can often take a long time to obtain a just settlement. The court grants extensive deadlines for both parties to make their claim. You may have to go through a number of independent medical evaluations. You may also have to go for an extensive review in order to ascertain the facts surrounding the injury you sustained on the job.
The review is mainly carried out to determine whether the injury was caused by a third party or whether it was due to the negligence of the employer. To build up the strongest possible case, Schiller Law Offices has a separate division that deals exclusively with employee injury.
While your employer will expect you to devote your time and effort, you are not bound to compromise on your health just to please your employer. Nobody is required to ask you to compromise your health or safety just to make a living.
If you have been involved in an accident on your job, don’t let the emotional and physical pressure get to you. Instead, seek the help of the law. At Schiller Law Offices Offices, we will help you get the best possible settlement for the pain you have felt. Over the years that we have been in practice, we have helped thousands of clients in Indiana.
