The team at Bronnberg & Henriquez PC assist residents of Bayside, NY, in pursuing the workers’ compensation they deserve. Here, they explain the necessary steps you should take after an incident to ensure the best possible outcome.

What to Do If You Are Hurt on the Job

1. Report Work Injuries to Your Employer

It’s important to notify your boss as soon as a work injury occurs. In some cases, you may have a limited timeline to report an incident, and failure to act swiftly can lead to a denial of your claim. Tell your immediate supervisor what happened so that they can fill out an accident report right away.

2. Ask for a Copy of the Accident Report

3. Seek Medical Attention

You’ll also need to seek out medical attention. While your employer may have the final say in which doctor you see, you may also be permitted to obtain a second opinion from a professional of your choosing. This is especially important if the first practitioner disputes the scope and severity of your damages, which can lead to the dismissal of your claim.
