Here are a few tips on what to do if you are injured at work:

  • Do not wait to report your injury.  To protect your rights, report your injury to your supervisor as soon as possible and in writing if possible.
  • Make sure you tell your supervisor you were injured: How, what where and when.
  • Get prompt medical attention from a health care provider authorized by the employer.
  • Inform your employer about your medical condition and when you can return to work.

Your employer can not take the cost of workers’ compensation insurance from your wages; nor prevent you from filing for workers’ compensation benefits; nor threaten you or take action against you for filing for benefits and hiring an attorney.
