When I got injured on the job, it had nothing to do with any sort of negligence on my part. In fact, the type of injury that I sustained was something that anyone in my line of work could possibly suffer at any moment. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the injury, I was going to be out of work for some time, and so I needed to make sure that I was able to make ends meet while I was out of work. I decided that I would apply for workers compensation, and seeing as how this was a common injury that happens in my line of work a lot, I did not see any reason why it would be denied. Unfortunately, my company decided that they were going to try to avoid paying me workers comp, and that meant that I would end up struggling to survive while I recovered from my injury.
It was for this reason that I decided to find an Oregon personal injury lawyer to help me fight so that I would not end up homeless. I had never been through this process before, so I was unsure which law firm would best help me in my quest to get my workers comp. After doing some research and talking to some of my coworkers who had been in similar situations, I was referred to a local law firm that specialized in these types of cases. From the moment I spoke with the lawyer, I knew that I was in good hands.
The firm fought for me so that I would get the compensation that I needed to get by while I recovered from my injury. I am now back to work, and I was able to cover my bills thanks to them.
