What Should I Do after an On the Job Fire Injury in NY?

First and foremost you need to report the accident to your immediate supervisor. Burns of any kind are a serious issue – whether you are in the fast food industry or the smelting business. Because of their severity, more often than not, burn injuries require immediate medial treatment. If an ambulance is called or another employee takes you, your employer will have a preferred hospital for you to visit.

With every step of the process, be sure to keep every piece of documentation and paperwork. It can make the difference between a successful New York worker's compensation case and losing out on valuable benefits later on.

Following your stay in the hospital you should begin the worker's compensation process immediately and contact a qualified New York on the job fire injury lawyer. The intricate nature of the application leaves many injured employees confused, lost and without the necessary funds to pay for their medical expenses. By starting the process early, and retaining the counsel of a dedicated attorney, you'll be ahead of the curve.

In regards to pain and suffering, few injuries can come close to a severe or even mild burn injury. The recovery period is considered by many, a living hell.
