If you have been injured at work or diagnosed with a work-related illness, you should take the following steps to protect your rights and your future:

  1. Report the incident to your employer. You need to inform your manager, supervisor, or other appropriate individual at the company that you have been injured. IDepending on where you live, you may have anywhere between 30-90 days to report your injury and file the appropriate claim. Be sure to inform your employer in writing of what occurred.

  2. Seek medical attention. Depending on the severity of your injuries, seek emergency medical treatment or visit a designated off-site healthcare provider as specified by your employer. It is important to seek treatment at whatever facility is appropriate based on the seriousness of your injury. Be sure to inform your healthcare provider that your injury is work-related.

  3. Follow your doctor’s orders. Follow the treatment plan specified by your doctor so you have the greatest opportunity of recovering as swiftly as possible.

  4. File your workers’ compensation claim. Depending on your location, your employer may be responsible for initiating your workers’ comp claim, or they may be responsible for providing you with the appropriate form to initiate the process. You may be able to file the appropriate forms online or by mail.

  5. Talk to a lawyer about your case. Talking to a legal professional about your claim can prove helpful in a number of ways. You can make sure you are on the right track, you can get help if your employer has denied that your injuries are work-related, and you can get assistance with an appeal if your claim was denied for any reason. Legal representation may be necessary if you are to receive full, fair benefits under your state’s workers’ compensation program.
