Don’t Sign Anything After Your Workplace Accident
Even if you have a great relationship with your employer and you believe that they want to do the right thing for you, when their insurer has to pay out on a workplace accident, your employer’s insurance premium goes up. The insurer will likely do everything in their power to treat you unfairly.Do not sign anything after your workplace accident aside from a report that states what happened. Signing a settlement agreement with your employer can take away your legal right to appropriate financial compensation. You could lose your right to sue.
