What do I do if I am Injured at Work?

Employers are supposed to provide a safe environment for their employees. However, sometimes the opposite is the case when dangerous areas pose injury risks. Whether inside or outside the premises, the absence of safeguards can serve as proof that injury incidents are likely to occur.

Contact Human Resources

If you have been injured at work and now you’re faced with a short-term or long-term disability, the first step you need to take is to contact your Human Resources department. You need to inform the HR Representative who handles disability claims and FMLAs about your situation. You will need to complete the appropriate paperwork to request time-off if your doctor has recommended recovery time. If your time-off request and disability coverage has been approved, you will receive notification from your employer.

Seek Legal if Your Claim is Denied

If you’ve submitted the proper documentation to your employer in a timely manner and your claim is denied, you can seek legal assistance regarding applying for workers’ compensation. A workers’ compensation lawyer is familiar with the strategies that some employers and insurance companies use to reduce or deny benefits for employees who have been injured at work.

Follow Through with Your Medical Recovery Plan

While your lawyer is working diligently to resolve your case, it is important that you follow up with your medical care and medication regime. The information documented in your records will verify your injury progress and indicate the length of time it will take for you to recover, or if the condition will worsen.

Worker Compensation Benefits

Workers’ compensation provides payment for lost wages and medical care. This type of insurance can help reduce the out-of-pocket expenses that you may be responsible for if your disability claim is denied. Workers compensation has been established to protect employees who have been injured at work from discrimination.

When employers fail to protect their workforce according to federal safety regulations, they can be held responsible. When you’ve followed the guidelines you were instructed to regarding your injury claim and your request has been denied, you don’t have to settle for denial. The workers’ compensation lawyers at Robbins, Strunk & Cramer may be able to help you get approved. Contact a lawyer today for assistance.

Documenting After a Workplace Injury

No one intends to get hurt at work, but unfortunately, accidents happen. It’s important for employees who have experienced a work-related injury to know their legal rights. Whether it is an accident that causes acute injury such as a slip and fall, or trauma that develops over time such as carpal tunnel syndrome, there are several things you can do to protect yourself.

Notify a Supervisory Immediately

If you are injured while on the job, report it immediately to your supervisor. In workers’ compensation cases, documentation is crucial in establishing a timeline and determining what actions are warranted on the part of the employer. If possible, report the injury in writing so that both you and your employer have copies. Be direct and clear about the extent of the injury, when it happened, and what circumstances contributed.
