If it is and you are trying to receive workers’ compensation, then these tips are important to consider. They can help you with the claims process, so that you can focus on your health and move on with your life.

Tell Your Manager

Immediately after getting injured, it is important to tell your manager, boss, or the person of authority on duty. Let them know what happened. The manager may have an obligation to record the injury and report it to the insurer and the department of industrial accidents. This is important because it may set in motion the claims process and certain obligations on the part of the employer and/or insurer.

Also, the sooner you report the injury, the fresher the incident is going to be in your head. This will help you to describe the accident as accurately as possible.
