What Should I Do If I have been hurt at Work?
It’s critical that the first thing you do after sustaining a work-related injury is report it. Reporting the injury starts the recording process of the events around your injury. In addition to any reports that are filled out at work, make sure that you are also keeping good notes of your own. Speaking to an attorney early in the process ensures that you do not miss any key deadlines and are fully aware of your rights and how the law applies to your situation.
