It is a very tough situation to be in if you are injured. It is even worse when your employer is not willing to pay a compensation to bargain for the injury. The situation is a grim one as you will not get your salary because you are not working plus additional expenses to cure the injury. It is taxing enough to go to work everyday and if you get injured then you need to make sure you are going to be paid for the expenses that you will incur. The compensation that you are going to receive will depend on the type of injury that you have sustained. Most employers would understand your situation and readily compensate for the medical bills and other redress. But there might be some who will not take any blame for the injury and even not pay for it. In such cases a work injury attorney can help you to seek for justice.
