I Got Injured At Work, What Should I Do?
If you’ve been hurt at work, then this message is about a series of steps which can make the difference in your receiving the benefits you deserve from your accident.
There are 4 very important steps to take when you been injured at work.
The First Step is “Treat” – If you’ve been hurt seriously, the first priority is to immediately seek medical assistance from the hospital emergency room or from a physician. Don’t downplay any injury as “nothing serious.” Things change. Today’s sore back can turn out to be tomorrow’s ruptured disc.
The Second Step is “Report” – When you’ve been injured at work, reporting the accident with your employer is extremely important and must take place quickly. Sit with your manager or human relations person and report to them exactly what happened.
The Third Step is “File” – People who have been injured at work tend to relax after reporting the injury to their employer and talking with the insurance company’s representative. You need to follow up and make certain the reports get filed quickly and properly.
And the Fourth and Final Step is “Recover” – You will be responsible for your recovery; consequently, you must follow the directions of the doctor, nurse and insurance company’s representative to the letter. Failure to stick to the plan of recovery can result in the loss of some of your benefits or possibly your entire claim.

Take Advantage of FREE Legal Help. Some attorneys advertise that there is no charge for the initial evaluation of your case. Some even say something like, “there’s no fee unless we win or settle your claim.”
What they may not be saying is that you could be responsible for the costs involved in your case. An attorney will often have to pay to get your records from a doctor. There also may be costs associated with reports, depositions, and transcripts regarding a claim. These costs can run as high as ,000 to ,000.
You could be billed for those total costs!
How do you recover that money? The Workers’ Compensation Judge will determine how your costs will be reimbursed, but that happens only IF YOU WIN your case!
