Palm Springs Workplace Accident Attorney
Concerning Workplace Accidents
Most people envision a workplace accident as a slip and fall, a back injury from lifting, a burn injury from fire or an explosion. Many on the job injuries, however, result from repetitive motion over a long period of time such as carpal tunnel syndrome. Occupational or work related illness comes from long term exposure. A supervisor or manager may not take such an injury seriously or may be uncooperative if there is no witness to an accident or injury. Due to the limited amount of time an injured person has to make a claim any delay may make it impossible to obtain the full compensation which may be available. With any serious workplace injury it is important to consult a Palm Springs personal injury attorney as soon as possible to protect your future.
