At times, a supervisor or supervisors will attempt to bully you into not reporting a claim. They may say things like, “I wouldn’t file a claim if you want to keep your job.” Or they may tell you there was no way you could have been hurt on the job, that it’s impossible. First off, don’t listen to them. I know it’s hard. However, you have a legal right to file a workers’ compensation claim if you were hurt on the job. In fact, delaying a report of a claim may be more harmful to you than actually reporting the claim.
The law provides protections to you once you have filed a claim and we can help you navigate them at the law offices of Benjamin Y. Gerber. Also, any and all consultations are free and confidential, so it never hurts to talk to us and ask questions.
