What to Do If You Are Injured on the Job
Your employer is obligated to pay for reasonable and necessary medical treatments if you are injured on the job. In addition, your employer is obligated to cover any lost wages if you are unable to work. You cannot be fired for making a workers’ compensation claim, so it’s worth it to discuss your options with an attorney.
To better help your case, make sure to do the following:
- Report your injury: Inform your employer of your injury as soon as possible. They will file a First Report of Injury form with their insurance carrier.
- Get medical attention: Your employer should send you to a physician or a hospital immediately after your injury. Make sure you get a thorough analysis of your injuries and keep all medical documents on file after your appointment.
- Speak with an attorney: Make sure all your bases are covered by talking with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible after your injury.
- File a workers’ compensation claim: File a written notice of a claim as soon as possible after your accident to get the claim on record. You only have one year from the date of the injury, if it was an accidental injury, to file a compensation claim. A 30-C form is available from any workers’ compensation office for this purpose.
If your claim is not denied by your employer, they must make payments within 28 days.
