It’s possible, even probable, that your employer and other at-fault parties will dispute your claim, arguing that you caused your own injuries. It’s also unlikely that you will be able to perform your own investigation, determine how the laws apply to your case, and create a compelling argument, all while you’re receiving extensive medical treatment or taking an extended leave of absence from work to heal.
