Frequently Asked Questions
What do I do if I have accident at work and I’m not sure to call an ambulance?
When you have an accident you should immediately call an ambulance. Sometimes, a supervisor may tell you not to call anyone and heal at home … this is wrong. Your company is trying to protect themselves, if you file a case later on. Having an ambulance pick you up at the job documents the accident location which cannot later be contested. No matter the circumstances, if you are injured call an ambulance yourself or have a co-worker do it. Then call the Kalra Law Firm to help you and your family.

What should I bring to your office at the first meeting? Do I need to obtain the records and documentation of my case?
You should take a photograph of the area or the equipment involved in your accident. Since, a construction site changes quickly, it is important to take the picture immediately after your accident. Get information such as Name and phone number of any workers in the area who may be a witness to your injury.
I don’t’ have legal papers or status. Can I still have a case?
