What To Do If You Are Injured At Work
What steps do I need to take if I’ve been injured at work?
- Notify your employer immediately that you have been injured.
- Seek medical care immediately and tell your doctor that you were injured at work.
- File an accident report.
- Keep all forms and reports that you have signed.
You will need to find out if your employer carries workers’ compensation insurance. If you are considering filing a workers’ compensation claim, you should consult with a San Antonio work injury lawyer to make sure your claim is processed correctly.
Although workers’ compensation insurance can provide benefits to an injured worker, disability payments may not be sufficient and the injured worker will not be compensated for pain and suffering. Your medical treatment may be limited to medical providers within the workers’ compensation network and your benefits may be denied. That is why it is important to understand your rights. Nadine Nieto has the experience necessary to evaluate your case to determine whether or not you are entitled to file a claim outside the workers’ compensation system.
While you are required to follow certain steps, it is also necessary for your employer to follow certain procedures. You should consult with an attorney to help you discover whether or not your employer is following proper procedures.
