Workers’ compensation, to the layperson, sounds complicated and only for certain heavy situations. Perhaps when someone is severely hurt like when they slip and fall or when something falls on them. Workers’ compensation is a lot of work, but it was created to benefit the employee. It was created to ensure that employees who get hurt get the opportunity for financial help via medical bills or loss of wages. But what if the injury doesn’t seem so big? Or what if you don’t feel as if it is a big deal?
The truth is we all have insecurities and we are all to some extent bashful when it comes to letting people know that we are hurting. But, when it comes to getting injured on the job there is no room to be bashful. There is no need to hide from your situation. Why opt not to use a system that was put in place to protect you? Why miss out on working with a fabulous support team at our Los Angeles Workers Compensation Attorneys at JML Law, a Professional Law Corporation? We know that injuries come in big and small packages. Regardless of the package, if you are injured then you need the attention to get back to health.
For instance, as humans, we take a lot of things for granted. Two of things are our hands. We use our hands for everything. As soon as we wake up we use our hands to push off the bed, brush our teeth, put on clothes, etc. Our hands butter our bread and are our bread and butter. This is particularly true if you work in professions that require you to use your hands steadily and with great care.
Most hand injuries aren’t just from those who sit at a desk and type all day. Hand injuries come from professions technicians, mechanics, electricians, hairdressers, watch repairers, fishermen, carpenters, construction workers, woodworkers, repair and maintenance people as well as secretaries and writers. These technical skills use their hands constantly. This can lead injuries such as bruising, tears in ligaments and tendons. Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a well-known injury, tendon pain, and De Quervain’s Disease. De Quervain’s Disease is when tendons around the thumb become inflamed. It can send shooting and burning pain through the hand. Imagine working a jackhammer and getting hit with that kind of inflammation! That’s a heavy accident waiting to happen.
