What to Do If You Are Hurt on the Job
If you are injured on the job, you need to report the injury to your employer right away. Delay in reporting not only delays getting the medical attention you need but it may also may interfere with your ability to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
If your injury or illness developed over time, report it as soon as you learn or believe it was caused by your job. Reporting promptly helps prevent problems and delays in receiving benefits, including medical care you may need.
Get emergency treatment if you need it. Your employer may tell you where to go for treatment. Tell the health care provider who treats you that your injury or illness is job-related.
Your employer must respond within one working day to your report of injury by providing you the necessary forms, so you can have your injury investigated and receive the benefits you deserve.
You need an experienced workers compensation attorney to advocate for you so you get the benefits you deserve.
