Following an injury on the job, the number one priority is ensuring you receive timely and adequate medical attention. However, once this is under control, the next step is to file a workman’s compensation claim with the proper authorities, and doing so in a timely manner.
The first four weeks are imperative when filing a claim, especially getting your case in the system within the first few days. Beyond 31 days things become more complicated, most commonly with regards to litigation. Additionally, it’s the old adage that if an injury is not treated immediately, it can worsen. This means it will cost more money, which employers and insurance companies never like the sound of, and could mean trouble for your claim.
If you’ve been injured while on the job, don’t delay and report it to your supervisor or human resources department. Get the medical assistance you need to keep unnecessary pains and long-term damage at bay.
