Worries after a refinery accident, spring cleaning your filing cabinet, & reading adventures with PBS
If you're worried about any of these 6 questions after a refinery accident, you may need a lawyer
It takes a split second for a refinery accident to change the course of your life. One minute you are working hard to earn a living and the next minute the whole future seems jeopardized. To make matters worse, the impact of a work injury can affect the entire family.
Besides the pain you are experiencing, the stress of unanswered questions takes its toll on your ability to eat, sleep, and function like normal. Questions like:
- How soon will I be able to work again?
- Where am I going to get the money to support my family?
- Am I going to lose my job?
- How are we going to afford these medical bills?
- Will my insurance even cover a work injury?
- Is it possible to just work through the pain? I really need my paycheck.
Not seeking legal help could ruin your chances at fair compensation later on down the road, which can have a serious ripple effect on your health and well-being.
Do yourself and your family a favor and get legal consultation. We’ll sit down with you and your loved one, listen to your side of the story, and come up with a game plan tailored specifically toward protecting your legal rights – and your future.
