Take these steps if you’re injured on the job

Even though you have no intention of suffering an on-the-job injury, this could happen at any time. It doesn't matter if you work in a dangerous field or sit at your desk all day, you never know what will happen.

There are some key steps to take if you suffer an on-the-job injury:

  • Obtain first aid: It doesn't matter if you treat yourself or ask others for help, it's imperative to treat your injuries as quickly as possible. Furthermore, make sure you call for an ambulance if you require transportation to a local hospital.
  • Notify your company: Let your employer know how the accident occurred, where it occurred and what type of injuries you're dealing with. It's important to do this as soon as possible, as you want to make it clear that your injuries occurred at work.
  • Follow the advice of your medical team: Depending on your injuries, you may not be able to immediately return to work. Your doctor may suggest that you take time away in order to recover. This is particularly true if you work in a physically demanding field.

After you better understand your situation and what's to come, you can file a claim for workers' compensation benefits. You do this with the idea of receiving financial assistance until you're able to return to work.

If your claim is denied for any reason, such as your employer stating that you were not injured at work, learn more about the appeals process. You shouldn't miss out on any money that's owed to you, as you're already facing a challenging situation.
