Everyone can admit that while change is a welcomed thing, moving is perhaps one of the most dreaded. While moving is necessary, no one wants to be tasked with the chore of looking for a new place, packing, discarding things you can’t or won’t take with you, or the most grueling part, finding people to help you move. Getting a helpful, reliable, productive group of “paid” movers is a lot of times, not as easy as it sounds.
It’s safe to say that at some point and time we have all we “drafted” for a moving crew or voluntarily took part because it was your move. Safety is always the most important aspect of the process because you want to make sure that nothing slows down the process and things move as smoothly as possible. Because a lot of time our friends and family members are not professional mover, care should be taken to ensure that clear paths are laid and items are secure during transporting.
With all the care in the world, accidents do occur. Perhaps a situation occurs and you are helping a friend move. As you travel thru your friends’ rental, you stumble courtesy of a loose floor board and you break your arm. What now? This is a horrible situation that will come with a host of inconveniences. Medical bills, loss wages, and loss of mobility, are just a few of the issues that arise when any type of injury. This can be very overwhelming. You feel like this is a bad situation and you will be out of time and money just trying to help out a friend or relative, it’s frustrating, but it doesn’t have to be. The uncertainty in the matter can be bothersome.
Not knowing what to do in this situation is the scariest aspect of the injury. You’re not certain as to who should approach, but you’re not certain what your rights are. There are educated professional who can and will aid you through the process of determining what, if any compensation is due to you following an accident that results in your being injured. Countless individuals are available to answer your questions and provide you with directions on the next step, if there is one that will get you some results.
