What to Do If You Are Injured on the Job
If you are injured on the job, it is important to take the following steps:
- Report the Injury: You should tell your employer of the injury as soon as you can. You may lose your right to seek workers' compensation benefits if you do not report the injury within 90 days.
- Seek Medical Attention: Get medical attention right away for your work injuries. If you do not do this, the insurance company may claim that your injuries were not as severe as you claim.
- Follow Your Doctor's Instructions: You should follow your doctor's instructions and attend all follow-up appointments. If you do not, the insurance company may argue that you are not as seriously injured as you claim.
- Maintain a Journal: Keep a journal of your injuries and how they affect your life. This can assist you in proving the extent of your injuries.
- Do Not Provide a Recorded Statement: The insurance company may request a statement from you. You should not do so without first consulting with a skilled injury attorney. Your statement could be used against you by the insurance company later.
- Do Not Sign Anything: You may be asked to sign a medical release or other document by the insurance company. Do not do so without first speaking with a lawyer. Your signature could be used against you.
- Do Not Post on Social Media: While your workers' compensation claim is pending, you should avoid posting on social media. Your posts may be used against you.
- Contact a Brick Workers' Compensation Lawyer: You should talk with a workers' compensation attorney as soon as possible. A lawyer can assist you in filing a claim and fighting for the benefits you are entitled to.
