WHAT TO DO WHEN YOU GET INJURED ON THE JOB Admin| 31 March 2017 If you are injured at work, report it immediately. The sooner you inform management, the sooner they can start the process of you receiving the relevant compensation. Initially, you may verbally report the incident, but make sure you follow up in writing as soon as possible. Some states vary on what kind of notice is legally required, but remember, a paper trail is your friend. Also, remember that some states have a statute of limitations that requires you to file your claim within a certain time after the incident. Failing to do so may nullify some of your legal rights to compensation or benefits from your employer.
PERSONAL INJURY CLAIMS AND LIABILITY AFTER A BOAT ACCIDENT Admin| 31 March 2017 If you get injured on a motorboat or a sailboat, you must be able to prove that your injury resulted from someone’s negligence in order to be able to recover damages from that person. The fact that you got hurt does not mean that anyone was negligent. Negligence is the failure to act with reasonable care. This means that you and your lawyer must be able to prove that someone failed to act with reasonable care, and that, as a result of that negligence, you got hurt.
