You Must Report Your Injury to Your Employer
Proper documentation of injuries and medical treatment is critically important in workers’ compensation cases. You must report your injury within 30 days of its occurrence. After reporting the injury to your appropriate supervisors or superiors, the next step is completing a notice of injury report.
Those who fail to report their injuries within the required timeframe lose the ability to secure the benefits they deserve. When injured workers wait too long to report, it allows the workers’ compensation insurance company to point to that lack of notice, hurting the credibility of the overall claim.
