Help, I Got Injured While Working at Kroger! More Inside
With over 2,000 stores across 34 states, Kroger is one of America’s largest retailers hiring over 400,000 people in different positions such as car attendant, cashier, bagger and so on. Kroger was established back in 1883, and it has grown over the decades to become one of America’s well-known groceries and home improvement stores. Kroger stores tend to be monstrous, so managing them may present a logistical nightmare, and it is not uncommon for workers to get injured due to the sheer size of the stores and a laissez faire attitude when it comes to mitigating hazardous working condition. As an injured Kroger employee, you are entitled to automatic compensation via workers’ compensation as long as you can prove that a work condition caused your injuries. That said, don’t expect to get the compensation you truly deserve without contacting the services of an experienced Kroger workers’ compensation attorney.

Kroger Workers’ Compensation – What are The Facts?
It is important to note that Kroger may or may not subscribe to workers’ compensation laws in your state. This means that in some states, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the corporation because workers’ compensation protection simply doesn’t exist, making it vital that you follow up on compensation via civil court channels such as personal injury. In addition, Kroger isn’t in the business of paying out claims because management believes that being just and generous with one claim will encourage an avalanche of claims coming their way from other injured workers.
