What Should I Do if I’ve Been Injured?
After an injury, it is important that you take the time you need to recover.
Many workplace accidents can lead to serious complications if not properly
treated. Workers’ compensation is in place to ensure you get the
medical care and wage compensation you need during the recovery process.
If you’ve been in an accident, it is important that you take the
- Report the injury to your supervisor, manager, or boss
- Seek medical attention or call 911 if it is an emergency
- Fill out a workers’ compensation claim with your employer
- Wait for your claim to be accepted or denied by your employer’s insurance company
If your claim was
denied, you have the right to fight the decision. Paperwork must be filed within
strict deadlines, however, so it is important that you act quickly. A
board certified workers’ compensation attorney can help you
avoid mistakes, file an application for adjudication, navigate an
MMI conflict, make an appointment with a qualified medical evaluator (QME) for an evaluation,
and represent you at the hearing in front of a judge.
