What to Do in the Event of an Ankle or Foot Injury at Work
If you experience pain in your ankle or foot while performing your job functions, you owe it to yourself to seek medical attention as soon as negative symptoms present themselves. If the injury requires immediate care, your employer is legally obligated to compensate up to $10,000 in emergency healthcare measures.
After you’ve sought initial medical care, you must report your injury to your employer if you haven’t already. Failure to do so within 30 days of the accident could jeopardize your chances of collecting maximum compensation from your company.
If you are unsure of how to proceed or fear an uncooperative response from your employer, contact RP Law Group right away. We’ll guide you through the entire process and protect you from unlawful retaliation.
