According to Canada’s Occupational Health & Safety Magazine, OHS Canada, over 40,000 workers are hurt each year, singly as a result of fall-related accidents.

When you factor in all of the other possible work-related injuries, including hazardous material accidents, repetitive motion injuries, workplace violence issues, and others, it’s easy to see that there are quite literally tens of thousands of individuals hurt on the job every year — or more.

This is sad news. Employees should not fear going to work, worried that they may be seriously hurt or even killed while just doing their job.

It’s because of these workers that the occupation of work related injury lawyer exists. An Alberta work injury lawyer can help employees who are injured on the job receive the compensation they deserve.

How Work Injury Lawyers Can Help

If you’ve been injured on the job, it’s a considerable mistake to file a related claim and not have the appropriate legal representation from the WCB lawyers Edmonton residents trust most.

Injury lawyers in Edmonton can help you:

  • Answer your claim-related questions
  • File a claim with workers’ compensation
  • File a claim with a negligent third party
  • File an appeal if the initial claim was rejected
  • Negotiate a settlement

Work Injury Lawsuit Issues

Ideally, someone who is injured on the job will file their workers’ compensation claim and being awarded the deserved amount. This monetary sum will help them pay for related medical expenses, time off from work, and other appropriate compensation.

In certain circumstances, however, there are issues with work injury lawsuits. These may include:

  • A rejection of a claim
  • Additional fault caused by a negligent third party
  • An inadequate sum being awarded

Considerations When Determining Whether Your Injury Is Work-Related

Ask yourself the following questions to determine if an injury was work related:

  • Did it happen while you were “on the clock”?
  • Did it happen while doing something for work, even if it didn’t happen at work?
  • Did it require medical attention?
  • Did it cause you to require time off work?

What About Work Injuries Caused by Companies?

Most of the time, it is not possible in Canada to sue your employer for a work-related injury or illness. Still, you should be entitled to owed compensation from the Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB). Therefore, if your employer company caused the accident, you’ll need to seek workers’ comp to recover compensation.

If a third-party company caused the accident, you may be able to sue this third-party for negligence or malicious intent. This is another situation in which help from a work related injury lawyer comes in.

With our services, we can help you:

  • File your work injury claim or file a lawsuit
  • File your appeal
  • Negotiate compensation
  • Work toward landing on a settlement with the third party whose negligence caused the accident
  • Help you gather evidence for your case
  • Answer questions related to your case

FAQs

  1. What is considered a work-related injury?

Essentially, any illness or injury that occurs while you are working may be considered a work-related injury. The illness or injury must require medical treatment, and in some cases time off from work may be necessary. Still, time off from work is not mandatory in order to make an injury or illness a work-related one.

  1. What happens if you don’t report an injury at work?

It’s important to notify a superior as soon as possible if you are injured at work. Generally speaking, they need to be notified within 30 days of the incident. If not, you may no longer have the right to receive compensation for your injuries.

  1. Do I need a lawyer for a work injury?

A work injury lawyer can help. Most importantly, they can assist you in recovering the deserved compensation you are owed for your injuries. The process of filing a claim or appeal for a work injury can be difficult. But by choosing the WCB lawyers Calgary residents trust, you’ll be well taken care of and carefully guided through the process for the best outcome.
