Injured on the Waterfront? Here’s What Not to Do After an Accident

http://www.turleylawfirm.com/ There are many dangers Longshore workers face. If you have been injured on the waterfront at work, there are many things you should and shouldn’t do following your accident. Find out in this video what things you should avoid doing in order to protect yourself and your benefits claim.

In order to obtain Longshore benefits, the insurance company is going to make you believe that you need to speak with their adjusters and investigators. At the Turley & Mara Law Firm, APLC we advise injured workers never to talk with adjusters or investigators because we know they are only after one thing—looking for any information that could be used against you to deny your claim. This is why you should notify the adjuster you are looking for an attorney and refrain from giving an investigator a recorded statement or written statement.  You also need to know that you shouldn’t sign any forms without an attorney reviewing them first.

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain by speaking with a seasoned Longshore Act attorney following your accident. At the Turley & Mara Law Firm, APLC we can help you seek the benefits you deserve. Call us today for help with your case at 866-705-4617 or contact us online at http://www.turleylawfirm.com/contact.cfm.
