Thought maybe I'd throw this up here in case anyone might have some advice to offer:
My brother was working an overnight shift and was assaulted by some drunken goons. Spent the night in the hospital and now he's back home. Luckily they were arrested and now we wait for crown to press charges.
Now comes the fun part of dealing with worksafe and all that jazz. This is something I've never experienced and know very little. He doesn't know much either. So thought maybe anyone here might be able to offer some stories or advice. Do we need a lawyer? Part of me wants to consider whether a civil case against these guys is worthwhile. He's part of a union, and I'm not sure what role they would play in this situation either.
Any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
