Don't Wait to Seek Treatment

For the average individual involved in an automobile accident, there are undoubtedly a million things rapidly spinning through your mind immediately following the collision. The last thing is usually "how can I bolster my lawsuit." Unless an individual is catastrophically injured such as sustaining broken bones or an impact that results in loss of consciousness, enough adrenaline is usually pumping through your bloodstream, which helps you to deal with the emergency, to get you through the next couple of days. Consequently, you may not feel any pain immediately. Furthermore, many soft-tissue injuries such as neck or low-back strains, may not begin to show symptoms for days, even weeks, following your accident.

Limits of the Worker's Compensation System

The Worker's Compensation Act provides relief for injured workers on a no fault system. This means that it is not necessary for the injured worker to prove that the employer did anything wrong in order to receive compensation. This makes it much easier than it might otherwise be for the injured worker to receive benefits. There is however a trade off for this standard. The Work Comp Act serves to make it so that more employees who are injured receive benefits but it also works to reduce the amount of those benefits.
