Injured! What Should I Do?

Whether it be a work injury or motor vehicle collision there are some basic steps to follow.

Report all injuries. That would be filing a traffic report, or completing a work accident form.

Let your supervisor know or inform your insurance company.

Make a copy of all reports you complete. This will serve as proof you were injured.

Go to the doctor right away. This will remove doubt of the cause of injury.

Inform all medical providers how you were injured and what body parts were injured. This will avoid insurance defenses that something beside the accident in question caused your pain and suffering.

Follow through with all treatment recommendations. This will avoid accusations that you are not hurt as badly as you allege.

Do not give any statements to the insurance company. They can and will be used against you.
