One of the first questions people ask when they call our law firm after they have been injured on the job is, “what do I do?” The first thing you should do if you are injured on the job is to immediately report the incident in writing to your supervisor, we cannot emphasize enough that your report must be in writing and that it must be given to your supervisor or even to your supervisor’s supervisor. If you have a Human Resources Department, you should make a report about your workplace injury to your Human Resources Department. You must report the injury. If you don’t report it, there is a high probability that the employer and the workers compensation insurer will claim that they never heard of your accident or incident, and they will contest that you were ever injured on the job.
