Many people will give you advice and their opinion. However, it may be bad advice and damage you and your family.
If you are injured on the job do not hesitate to report it immediately.
Failure to report may fatally damage your case.
Report it to your supervisor and complete a written report of injury. Get a copy of everything you submit. You will never be sorry for having too much paperwork supporting your case.
Do not let the insurance company and your employer claim that you never reported your injury.
What is at stake?
Your medical treatment, your off work pay, and your work injury settlement.
Do not be the one who is left responsible for all your work comp treatment and left with no pay while off work, and without a work comp payment at the end of the case because you neglected to complete a written accident report.
