Seek Medical AttentionIf someone is injured at work, ensure they seek medical attention right away. If needed, call an ambulance to help tend to the injured employee. If their injuries don't seem so bad, encourage them to visit a doctor to be sure everything is okay. It's important that any medical attention and treatments are documented. Ensure your employee lets the medical center know this injury occurred at work. This can help with the workers compensation filing process.
Report Workplace InjuryIf you are a manager, report the injury to your supervisor or business owner. Now is time to file injury with your workers comp company. A representative from the company can help walk you through the procedures needed to complete the claim. It's important that you file the documentation promptly to get the process rolling for your workers comp claim. This will also help speed along the process for your employee to get financial assistance needed to cover their medical expenses from the work injury.
Know Your RightsAs a business manager or owner, it's important to know your rights in a workers compensation case. If you are worried about a recent workplace injury, you'll likely want to seek legal representation to ensure your business is protected and your rights as a business owner are respected.
