Take these steps first and your Workers’ Compensation case will go much smoother.
As soon as you are injured make sure to file an accident report, include all your body parts injured, and keep a copy of it.
No one will be able to argue that you did not give notice if you have the accident report.
Go to the doctor as soon as possible.
Tell the doctor you were hurt at work and how it happened.
Delays in medical treatment and failure to report a history of your work accident, are two of the biggest reasons for work comp denials.
The Workers’ Compensation Law provides for time off work pay, medical treatment, and payment for the work injury itself at the end of the case.
Following these tips will help you get your benefits sooner and without a hassle.
