It’s bad enough when you hurt yourself in your day to day life, or as a result of your own dumbness. I think of all the times I nearly killed myself as a child out of pure stupidity, like the time I threw a metal pipe into the air and watched it come down and blast me in the forehead. I was bleeding all over the place and needed stitches. But sometimes you’re injured beyond your control, whether it’s a crash or the result of another person’s negligence; It’s especially scary when it happens in the workplace while being pushed to the limit physically. Although my dad usually works in his hometown, Warren, he is often called to jobs in Highland Park, Southfield, and Royal Oak—all along the southern outskirts of Detroit. For the first 30 years that he worked for the electrical union, my dad never had an extreme accident or injury. But 1 job called for him to balance on a small ladder at a sharp angle without help or support from another worker. Sadly, my dad fell off the ladder and broke several bones in his left arm, and bones in his left knee. All of us were cheerful that he didn’t break his neck or spine during the fall, but all of us also knew how substantial it was to find a personal injury attorney in Warren that specializes in employer damage. Before we applied for worker’s compensation, we wanted to ask the personal injury attorney what our best course of action is and how to pursue it.
