Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim
If you suffer an injury at work, it is vital that you report it your manager or supervisor as soon as possible. Doing so is the first step in the process of getting compensation for your injuries and any time off that you may need to heal. Once you’ve reported your injury, it is up to them to report it to their insurance provider and recommend a physician to evaluate your injury.
