What Should You Do After Being Injured on the Job?

- Tell your employer you have been injured. The law requires you to report the injury within 30 days of your knowledge of the injury.
- When reporting the injury, ask the employer which doctor is authorized under their insurance policy.
- In an emergency, go to the emergency room first and let your employer know about the injury as soon as possible.
- Your insurance company adjustor should call you within 24-hours to explain your rights and obligations.
- Within 3-to-5 days of the employer reporting your accident, you should receive a brochure as well as an informational packet with the documents related to your case.
