Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question and respond.
Were you on the clock here or after hours??
Well this should be a Workers Comp claim--you were injured on the job.You would need to make sure they file one on your behalf.You certainly can argue t was an unsafe work environment.If they pay you as a WC case for lost wages, medical disability if you are unable to return to work these are the limits of your damages.Your next step is to contact your HR here if you have not done so and file for WC.You were on the job and this occurred while working and should be bonafide WC injury.
I am truly sorry you have had to deal with this.WC should provide counseling and anything else you need to oversome this medically and mentally since it occurred on the job.It amazes me that they did not file this as WC.
WC Forms Submission Reminders
You can get the WC forms here or your HR ought to have them or WalMart.This is a covered claim for your injuries both medical and mental.
I appreciate the chance to help you and wish you the best here.You deserve the benefits here file as soon as you can.You may also have a permanent disability rating that would pay you over lifetime as well.
If you can positive rate 5 stars when we are done it is much appreciated.
You would only be able to sue if they denied the WC claim for wages, medical, etc.They should cover this if it was on the clock here.
I wish you the best.Happy Thanksgiving too.
