If you are hurt on the job at an Amazon warehouse or office facility, you might not know enough about your rights or the best path for your specific situation. If you are injured while doing work, you are eligible to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits.
It is always wise for an injured or ill worker to seek representation when injured at work, you can be eligible for benefits regardless of fault.
If you get hurt in an Amazon warehouse accident, be sure to:
SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION See a doctor or a physician in the emergency room as soon as possible after being in a warehouse accident. Even if you don’t feel that the injury isn’t bad or severe, you might not know the long-term effects of the injury. Insurance companies may deny any claim without a medical visit.
REPORT INJURY TO EMPLOYER To complete your workers’ compensation claim after a warehouse accident, your employer needs to know about it as soon as possible. You must notify an employer’s representative within 30 days of the accident.
MAKE SURE COWORKERS KNOW If a co-worker was present during the accident, make sure to ask them what they saw. If not, find out as soon as you can what they know.
TALK TO A WORKERS COMPENSATION LAWYER
After reporting your injury, you should talk to a lawyer who handles work accident cases. You may even choose to hire a lawyer before reporting your injury if you have reason to believe that you will need legal representation from the start. In most cases, however, you do not need legal help until you begin preparing for a claim. Remember that a claim is different than a report. You report your injury to your employer, but you file a claim with the workers compensation insurance company as soon as you need help paying your medical bills and getting mileage reimbursements from the insurer.

Amazon warehouse jobs push workers to physical limit

I got hurt back in December, 2014. I was having a hard time dealing with workers comp and I moved about a year and half after my injury. Once I was established in Macon, I found Powers Law Group that specializes in several areas. Workers compensation, was one of their specialties. I gave them a call and within a few days had my consultation, I was able to get more done in 6 months with them than had been done the whole time I was dealing with workers comp on my own. After a lot of doctor visits and testing I was finally able to find out what was wrong. I received my settlement check today and was happy with the out come. If you or someone you know needs a good lawyer they are who you need to see!!!

Macon Workers Comp Lawyer Testimonial by Marcia English in Macon GA
At my first visit we discussed my case and determined Mr Powers would take my case. He outlined what would be expected. His office kept me informed of the progress and I met with them when needed. He was able to get me a resolution of my case. He and his staff were professional and very nice to work with.
