After You Get Hurt on the Job There are Things you Need to Do
Report the injury to your employer Immediately
Tell your supervisor right away. If your injury or illness developed gradually (like tendinitis or hearing loss), report it as soon as you learn it was caused by your job. Reporting promptly helps prevent problems and delays in receiving benefits, including medical care you may need to avoid further delay.
Report the injury to your union Immediately
Get emergency treatment if needed and Seek Medical Attention
If it’s a medical emergency, go to an emergency room right away. Your employer may tell you where to go for treatment. Tell the health care provider who treats you that your injury or illness is job-related.
Fill out a claim form and give it to your employer
Your employer must give you a claim form within one working day after learning about your injury or illness. You use it to request workers’ compensation benefits.
Fill out and sign the "employee" portion of the claim form. Describe your injury completely. Include every part of your body affected by the injury. Give the form to your employer, which is called filing the claim form. Do this right away to avoid possible problems with your claim.
Get good medical care. You must see a Doctor to protect your body and your potential claim
Get good medical care to help you recover. You should be treated by a doctor who understands your particular type of injury or illness. Tell the doctor about your symptoms and the events at work that you believe caused them. Also describe your job and your work environment.
