2. REPORT THE INJURY TO YOUR COMPANY In most situations, your employer will already know about your injury and reach out to you. But if they don’t, you must report the injury to your employer. This ensures there is a record of it and an opportunity for the employer to do the right thing. If there is a dangerous piece of equipment that needs to be fixed or another company that needs to be made aware of a dangerous employee, your employer should do this. It also allows documentation of the injury in the required timeline to get compensation (usually required within 72 hours of an injury). 3. ASK QUESTIONS If you don’t know what to do or have never been down this path before, you are not alone. Whether it’s researching as much as you can or reaching out to us, I encourage you to do it. Then, once you have exhausted your research and options, let us know. We can help you understand what your rights are and whether you even need a lawyer to resolve your claim.

When you’re hurt at work, there are so many questions running through your head, not to mention the pain you’re feeling. You’re probably tempted to just go home and rest, especially if you’ve had medical treatment. But there are important steps you need to take right away after a workplace injury. If you are unable to carry them out, find someone who can, because protecting yourself after you’ve suffered an injury at work is as important as preventing one in the first place.

So, what are the first steps after a workplace injury?

1. SEEK MEDICAL ATTENTION Even if your employer does not have workers’ compensation and doesn’t offer to send you to a doctor, make sure you find one to go to. If you need help figuring out why your employer is not helping with this, please just give us a call. We will help you.
