My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: Arkansas
I am contracted to work with the Army National Guard in Arkansas (where I live) but the company I work for is in Texas. I fell on Feb. 26 as I was coming inside to clock in. I do not have to clock in for my company but for the Army. When I fell, I landed on my left hip. When I got up I could not hardly walk. I came inside and notified my supervisors at the Army after I clocked in and waited for the company I work for to open so I could contact them. The Army Doctor that I work with came over and looked at me and said that I had knocked my pelvis out of whack. My employer told me to go to the ER but that it would probably not be covered under worker's comp since I was not clocked in when it happened. I have copies of a case in AR that was overturned to the favor of the employee with the same incident. This case was never turned into Worker's comp by my employer and I'm thinking I need to get a lawyer to send it in. What do you think?? Do I have a case or not??? Thanks for your responses.
