Workplace injuries are quite common, and many of them will fit this description. However, even if your case is similar to the one you described above, you should still consider reaching out to a personal injury attorney.

An experienced personal injury attorney does a lot more than file paperwork. In addition to helping you meet all deadlines and prepare documents, a personal injury attorney gathers evidence and fights the insurance companies for you.
They also help draft settlement agreements, ensuring that you get the proper payment for your injuries, and that these payments are delivered in a timely manner. And if your case goes to trial, your attorney will prepare you for and represent you in court.
