What To Do After A Workplace Injury
If you or a loved one has suffered an injury on the job, here are some basic steps to follow:
Report your injury promptly to your supervisor: Your employer is required by state law to report all workplace accidents that result in an injury and lost time at work. Make sure you get the names of witnesses and correct facts in the report.
Obtain medical treatment: Even if your injuries do not seem serious, you will be required to seek medical attention in order to collect workers’ compensation benefits. You may be directed to a pre-authorized doctor for initial treatment. You are usually entitled to seek continued treatment and care from the doctor of your choice.
Talk to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney: A qualified workers’ compensation lawyer can show you how the system works and what options you will be faced with regarding permanent or temporary disability, job retraining, returning to work and co-benefits through the federal system.
Follow your doctor’s orders: Stick to prescribed medication and physical rehabilitation of your injuries.
