What Should I Do After a Workplace Injury?
After you’ve been injured at work, you must follow certain steps to align with protocol and protect your potential benefits. Immediately following an accident, ask someone nearby to help you call for medical treatment, or, if necessary, ask them to administer emergency medical aid. Before you leave the office (if your injury is not life-threatening), tell your boss that you were injured. When you get to your doctor, be sure to tell them that your injury was work-related, they will fill out the appropriate forms on your behalf, making the claims process easier later on down the road.
Once your most immediate problems have been addressed, you must contact the HR person at your work, as well as your boss, to notify them of your injury. Within 30 days, you’ll also need to provide your employer with a more official notice of your accident and resulting injuries. They will provide you with the appropriate paperwork, and once you have submitted the forms, your employer will submit them to their workers’ compensation insurance company.
While you fill out forms and wait for your benefits, it is extremely important to follow your doctor’s orders to the letter. Rest, heal, and follow any recommendations your doctor(s) have prescribed.
