Injured on Your Job: What Should You Do Next?

injured on your job | Gaylord & Nantais

Notify Your Supervisor

If you have been injured in an accident while on the job, you must notify your supervisor immediately. While it is important to tell them as soon as it happens, you must also give them a written statement that includes the date and time of the injury, what you were doing, what exactly occurred and how you were hurt. This statement must be presented to your supervisor within 30 days of the accident.

Explain What Happened

You will need to be very detailed as to what happened. You will need to describe what you were doing before as well as what may have caused the accident. It may be beneficial to have someone take pictures of the accident scene to help clarify any confusion.

See A Doctor

Most accidents involve some degree of injury. Even if you don’t think you have been injured, symptoms may appear later that prove otherwise. It is important to always get checked out by a physician to ensure that you do not have any injuries that may eventually cause you to lose work or impact your quality of life.

When someone is injured at the workplace, the first steps they take may have an impact on whether or not they have a viable Worker’s Compensation claim. It is important to hire an attorney who will help you meet the filing deadlines and give you peace of mind.
