What To Do Following A Work Injury
The first thing you should do is seek medical care even if you do not seem or feel injured. This has more to do with your safety and well being than your work comp case. However, delaying getting checked out by a doctor or going to the emergency room can complicate your case down the road.
In addition to medical care you also need to report your injury to your supervisor, manager, boss, etc. immediately. Do not go home first. Do not go for a beer at happy hour first. Report your injury immediately in writing.
