What should I do if I have a work injury?

No matter how insignificant you think your injury may be at the time, you should report it to your supervisor right away. Many times an injury does not seem too bad when it happens, but over the next day or two it will become more severe. Failure to immediately report an injury is a common reason that workers’ compensation claims are denied by the workers’ compensation insurance carrier. So, while you may think that you are doing the right thing by not complaining about every little injury, you may actually be jeopardizing your claim by not reporting the injury right away. Also, be aware that the injury must be reported to a supervisor, not a coworker, in order to be considered as proper notice to your employer.

At the same time that you report the injury, you should also request medical treatment if you think that it is necessary. Even if you do not think that it is necessary at the time, you should ask if there is a list of doctors with whom you are supposed to treat for a work injury, so that, in the event that your injury worsens, you know where to go for treatment. Another common reason workers’ compensation claims are denied is that the medical records of your doctors may not accurately reflect how your injury occurred or all of the injuries you sustained. When you do seek medical treatment it is, therefore, very important that you make sure to tell each new doctor that you see how your injury happened, that it happened at work, and all of your body parts that were injured.
