Hi. I’m Attorney Andre’ Ramsay, your workers’ compensation attorney. Now, what should you do after you suffer an injury at work? It’s quite simple – tell someone, whether it’s your team lead, whether it’s your supervisor, your supervisor’s supervisor. But inform someone not only that you are hurt, but also that you were hurt because of work. That’s very important. By law, you have 30 days to provide your employer with notice of an injury. I implore you not to wait for 30 days, sooner the better. Tell them right away. That way, an incident report can be written up. That way, you can get to the medical treatment that you need sooner than later. And that way, there is not possibly an investigation that would stop you from getting the benefits that you deserve.
So again, inform your supervisor immediately after the injury. If you have to go to the emergency room immediately, then do so. But after you get home from the emergency room, call your supervisor, call your employer, and keep a written report or a record of what happened. Try to fill out an Incident Report if needed. Most employers would appreciate you doing so because then there’s record of the injury. Do all of these things and also don’t forget to call me. I’m here to help you with your injury. I’m here to help you with your accident. That is what I do.
Again, my name is Andre’ Ramsay and I’m the lawyer for the everyday worker.
