If they want to take your statement right away regarding the accident;

If they do not respond to your calls, texts, or emails;

If they tell you work does not know about your injury;

If they do not authorize your medical treatment;

If they forget to offer you a settlement.

Any of these things happen make sure to call a work injury or injury lawyer immediately.

Injury lawyers only get paid if you win your case.
