What You Should Know & Do
Workers’ compensation is is often the exclusive remedy for a person who sustains a work-related injury to be compensated for their medical expenses, lost wages and permanent injuries they sustain as a result.  Under most circumstances, a person injured on the job is prohibited from suing their employer from negligence.  Give that workers' compensation is likely the only way for a person on the job to be compensated, here are some important things to understand and do:
  • Once a work injury occurs, report your work injury immediately.
  • Report the injury immediately to a manager, supervisor or administrator, preferably in writing. 
  • Report all injuries or pain that you are feeling, even if it seems minor.
  • You have two years from the date of injury to file a claim for benefits, if it was properly reported. 
  • Your employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier initially chooses what doctors you see. 
  • If you see a doctor on your own, it may not be covered.
  • Do not refuse treatment.
  • Follow the doctor's instructions.
  • If the doctor releases you back to work or puts you on light duty, do not refuse to return to work.
