While some employers go to great lengths to make sure their employees are taken care of following workplace injuries, many other employers sadly don't seem to care at all.
In fact, some businesses are simply more concerned with their bottom line than the well-being of their workers - meaning they may not be very helpful if you are injured on-the-job and subsequently seek workers' compensation benefits. In some instances, they may even attempt to throw various obstacles in your path and make accusations detrimental to your claim, including:
- You filed your workers' comp claim too late
- Your injury didn't actually occur at work
- You already had the injury before you started working for us
- Your injury isn't serious
However, even if your employer isn't interested that you were hurt while working for them, that doesn't mean you don't have a claim. Therefore, you cannot afford to be scared away from filing a workers' compensation claim, even if your boss claims your injury isn't serious.
