Many jobs can have a very high risk of injury and even air conditioned office jobs can lead to employees being hurt on the job. Seemingly small injuries like cuts, scrapes, bruises, burns, scratches may have underlying or unknown long term side effects. An example is when John Trevor fell off a ladder last fall. He scratched and bruised his legs. His thought was that was the end of it. Recently he has been having issues with his back that are related to the same fall. He was smart enough to contact a lawyer when it had happened just to be sure and through their advice he is protected and has his medical bills paid for instead of the insurance company claiming that his back is an unrelated injury. He simply got a free consultation from a good lawyer who gave him sound advice.
Utah Labor Commission indicates over the last few years the number of people being hurt on the job is decreasing. If you are injured on the job make sure you contact a lawyer to ensure that you are protected financially and medically no matter how small the injury seems.
