What Should I Do After Suffering An Injury At Work?
The first thing you need to do after an injury at work is get medical care. Your health and safety should be the first priority. Once your situation is no longer an emergency, you can do a few things to help ensure you have a strong claim for your workers’ compensation benefits, including reaching out to your manager and any human resources officials through an official record, like a formal report, written email or another lasting record. Be clear about your injury, what happened and how it has impacted you.
Does Workers’ Compensation Cover Repetitive Stress Injuries Or Illnesses?
Yes. Repetitive stress injuries, an illness caused by chemical exposure and other long-term injuries and illnesses are included in workers’ compensation. It may be difficult, however, to illustrate the relationship between your work and your medical complications. We help you document your injuries and consult with experienced medical professionals.
What Kind Of Benefits Can I Receive Through Workers’ Compensation?
