    Default Injured at Work, My Employer is Not Following the Rules

    I was hurt almost 2 weeks ago at work. I saw my doctor first thing on Monday (my injury happened on a Saturday night). I went into work that Wednesday as scheduled and I was sent home due to being hurt. I then missed Friday & Saturdays shifts I was scheduled for. I am not scheduled again until this Thursday (my usual work days are Wed, Fri, & Sat nights), and I'm off per my dr till at least Friday and in therapy, going in to do another position for a few hours. Here's my issue, my employer has not contacted their insurance, there is nothing posted in the building regarding my rights, my injury happend by slipping on a wet floor, there was no caution sign out. If I go in to work Friday, that will be the only day I'm working for probally several weeks. Does this mean I will get no compensation for the days I missed? Also I'm being cut from 3 6-8 hour shifts a week, to 1 maybe 2-3 hour shift a week. I cannot afford this, I am a single mother with a disabled child (5). I need help or I will not be able to pay my bills in the coming month. Should I contact an attorney?? Please help!!!!

    you probably don't even know if your employer has insurance or not.

    Probably a good idea to consult with an atty/s.
    Whether your ER has insurance or not, they are still holding liability for work injuries.
    An atty would take the pressure off you while the eligiblity for benefits is determined. You would also know for sure if there is insurance, or if a claim has been filed.
    There's no fee for consultation, only fee would be post settlement of the claim.
