This is what a good history of work injury looks like for your employer accident report and your doctor visit.
On March 11, 2019, closed the fence to the truck yard and smashed my right hand between the post and gate. Pain and swelling started right away.
You should make a copy of your injury report for yourself and give it to the doctor’s office, if possible. Go to the doctor immediately if you can. Be specific and tell them how your injury happened at work.
This is what a bad history of injury looks like.
No accident report.
You tell the doctor that you cannot remember what happened, but you know your hand is hurting and you are not sure how long it has been like this.
Do not make these mistakes and damage your work comp case.
