The only reason I injured myself was my lack of training and, in my opinion, inadequate PPE. The same reason is for why the injuries were not checked out by a doctor-I was lead to believe that there is no sense in getting tests or it seen to if it is "only a small ammount"-How do they, or I know how much of the product entered my body if no one checks it out? It is impossible to.
They have been reported to the DWC and I am filing my own report of injury(s) today. I would like to have an attorney talk to me prior to me even seeing the doctor my employer/their insurance chooses me to see. How can I go about doing this? Or does workers comp provide me with an attorney prior to this?
