Work injuries can be serious.
What you do at the beginning of your injury may protect your case several years later.
Do not let a supervisor or co-worker talk you into not reporting your work injury. It may be fatal to your case later on.
Arbitrators (the Judge) and insurance companies look closely at what happens right after you were injured.
So make sure to make a written injury report as soon as possible after the accident happens.
Make sure to see a doctor as soon as possible and tell all medical providers you were hurt at work.
Documentation will improve your work injury case and make sure that you receive all benefits you are entitled to under Illinois law.
