Real Clients, Real Stories: Robyn
Well I was going to school full time and working part-time. I would go out into the store and gather different products to promote what I was selling and I slipped and I fell. The next day my knee blew up and I called my manager and I told my manager that I was hurt. Well, they didn't believe me. I tore my meniscus. I was on workmen's comp and I was told that I had to continue to work. I called the union rep they never called me back. The woman from workman's comp totally ignored me. She made me continue to work. It was awful because I was going to school I was working and the longer it went on, the madder I got because I got hurt on the job. I wasn't gonna do anything. I didn't know what to do, but I was on crutches for an entire year. It just was this tangled web and I was caught in it. When I called Edgar Snyder, I didn't really expect anything at all.
She was concerned, like many of our clients, regarding lost wages and payment of medical bills. We're here for people who are in danger of losing their benefits, for people who are trying to get workers’ compensation benefits, and for people who are just tired of the system and want to get on with their life and looking into a resolution of their workers compensation claim.
What impressed me the most was the fact that no matter when I called they called me back. They care, and that's what really impressed me. It mattered to someone, and that's why I pursued it— because I mattered and my injury mattered. It was the greatest feeling in the world. I just can't thank Edgar Snyder & Associates enough because someone listened finally.
We help people like Robyn who are sick and tired of the work comp system, and want to get on with their lives.
You're not just a number. You're not just another person calling up the firm. You are someone.
"I felt like I was a person, not just a number."
The cases we handle at our law firm come in all shapes and sizes. Some involve catastrophic injuries or deaths, while others involve seemingly minor injuries that lead to chronic pain down the road. Regardless of the scope, the attorneys at Edgar Snyder & Associates treat each and every case as if it is the only one they are handling.
Robyn shared with us her story of how she was hurt on the job. Unsure of whether she even had a case "big" enough for a law firm to care about, she contacted Edgar Snyder & Associates. She was glad she did.
After a slip and fall accident at work, Robyn tore her meniscus and needed to use crutches for a year while she recovered. She was forced back to work without being physically ready, and fell a second time. Robyn's injuries worsened, leading to multiple knee surgeries and pain down the road.
After being ignored by her employer and by Workers' Comp, Edgar Snyder & Associates listened. "I mattered, and my injury mattered," she remarked. And not only that, her team helped to protect her rights as a worker so she could get a lump sum settlement to get off workers' comp and get on with her life.
