    What are the Main Considerations?

    Where PPE is the responsibility of the company, many companies require that employees provide a certain level of their PPE. If it was your responsibility to provide yourself with protective boots and eyewear (for example) and you neglected to do so, it may not be the companies responsibility to provide such. However, the company should have not allowed you to work in such conditions. You should seek the advice of a legal professional to determine if the company was negligent in this case.

    Injury compensation is dependent upon the timeframe in which you file your claim in relationship to the time of the injury. Many factors are taken into consideration when filing a claim including the grossness of the negligence, the likelihood of injury at another company under the same conditions, the time in which it was filed, and other cases similar to your claim.

    Should You go to the Doctors with Your Injury?

    You should always consult a doctor, nurse, or medical staff or practitioner concerning any injuries and follow their diagnosis and treatment for those injuries. Never attempt to increase your injury to receive compensation as this is both illegal and extremely dangerous to your health.
