We advised the client of these common mistakes you can make in a loading dock accident case, and you should avoid making these mistakes.
Not Reporting Your Accident
One mistake would be to not report your accident or injuries to your employer; you should always do that.
Speaking to Insurance Companies
Another mistake would be to talk to an insurance company adjuster on the telephone. We always advise our clients not to talk to insurance companies.
Failure to Seek Immediate Medical Treatment
A third mistake would be not seeking medical treatment with your company doctor under workers’ comp law.
Not Looking Into Other Companies
We would always advise clients that are injured on a loading dock accident to look and see if there may be other companies that are responsible for their injuries. Other companies would include trucking companies, logistic companies, forklift rental companies. See if another company caused your accident and, if so, a claim can be made against them.
Not Hiring an Attorney
