Accidents happen, even if proper safety rules are being followed. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, here are some tips to follow:
- After being injured in the workplace, you should immediately notify your supervisor. Failing to report your injury promptly could result in your employer’s insurance company denying your claim. It is also important to keep a record of who you talk to and when you notify them.
- Go to an emergency room or doctor as soon as possible. It is important to get treatment for your injuries as well as get proper documentation. Be sure to follow your doctor’s orders on how to treat your injury, or you could risk your benefits being terminated.
- Consult an attorney. Speaking with a professional about the next steps to take is the best way to get any questions answered and have someone looking out for you.
