    Workplace Injuries

    Injured at Work in San Antonio, TX?

    If you have been injured at work, you may think that Workmen’s Comp is there to help you out. However, Workmen’s Comp was originally started as insurance for the company and not the employee. Plus, in some states like Texas, employers don’t even have to carry Workmen’s Comp. So, it takes a tough and dedicated attorney like Cesar Ornelas to make sure that you are getting compensated for your injuries. Your company probably has plenty of lawyers and company doctors, why would you let them decide how injured you are?

    Not All Injuries Are Visible

    When you ask most people about getting injured at work, they will think of someone slipping on a spill, falling off a ladder, or getting exposed to some toxic substance. It’s not just that anymore. Workplace bullying, discrimination, violence, and harassment is a very real problem and the mental scars are just as real. Have you suffered any of these at work?

    Steps For Getting Help For Workplace Injuries

    • Notify Your Supervisor of your injury – You have a very limited time to report, usually under 24 hours
    • Seek medical Attention
    • Documentation – You need to get documentation and a written report of the accident
    • Witnesses – Make sure to collect witness reports if you can and list all the witnesses
    • Evidence – Take photos of where the accident occurred and anything else that may have lead to it
    • Account – While everything is fresh, you write down the entire incident with as many details as possible
    • Legal Help – Contacting legal help as soon as possible will help ensure that your rights are respected and you get the help you need
