No one plans to get injured at work when they wake up in the morning but, if an injury happens it's good to know the procedures and steps to take in case something like that were to occur. Number one, if the injury is serious, you need to get a medical treatment immediately. Get to a hospital or a doctor if you have an emergency situation. Number two, notify your employer.
The statute requires you to notify your employer within a specific time period. Number three, keep all documentation from your employer, from the insurance company, from the hospitals and doctors that you see. Number four, call an attorney. A competent attorney can assess these things and give you guidance as to which way you need to go.
