Do Not Fall for Intimidating Tactics

Many workers believe that filing a claim will result in them not being hired anywhere else in the future. Others are convinced that a claim will stay on their record. Believing these misconceptions may have you miss out on receiving compensation to which you might be entitled.

In reality, workers’ compensation laws are meant to protect injured workers, providing them with the right to sue when they have been injured at work. This also applies to the state of Florida. So, know your rights. Otherwise, you may make a decision that will affect your life the wrong way.

Avoid Making Mistakes

When workers are injured, they may be told to act a certain way or risk losing any compensation they might have received. In some cases, you might hear about bosses who ask injured employees to lie or provide incorrect information regarding the accident and their injuries.

Yet, starting out with a lie may put your rights at risk. Avoid lying to any medical professional about the accident and do not believe false promises that your boss will personally take care of your medical bills. Keep to the truth and request receipts and documentation for each medical visit.

You may also be told that your job will be kept open for you or that your salary will be paid while you recover. Or you may be told that you will be deported if you speak up regarding the accident. These may turn out to be empty promises, let your lawyer do the talking for you.
