I started working when I was 18. In over 30 years of working, I had never had an injury. All of that change when I was badly hurt while doing something that was routine for me. I thought that my employer would do everything possible to ensure that I got the medical treatment and other benefits that I deserved. I was wrong. I ended up working with a personal injury attorney to get the benefits I deserved. I started this blog after I discovered that my situation was not unique. I wanted others to understand their rights and what they can do to get what they need.
