OFFERING PROFESSIONAL ASSISTANCE
If you are experiencing pain in your ankle or foot while executing your job functions, you owe it to yourself to seek medical assistance as soon as possible. If your accident necessitates immediate medical attention, your employer is legally obligated to cover up to $10,000 in emergency medical expenses.
If you haven’t already done so, you must report your foot injuries to your employer after seeking immediate medical attention. Failure to do so within 30 days after the accident may compromise your ability to receive total compensation from your employer.
Contact RP Law Group immediately soon if you’re unsure how to proceed or are concerned that your employer will be obstructive. We’ll walk you through the entire process and safeguard you against unjustified retaliation.
