If you are injured on the job…


  • Report injury immediately to employer
  • File a written claim immediately
  • Seek medical treatment
  • Give your doctor a complete and accurate history
  • Go to your doctor, not the employer’s doctor
  • Seek legal advice if:
    • Your claim is denied
    • You do not understand what is happening or
    • The insurance company wants to settle


  • Assume the problem will go away
  • Assume the information you get from the employer or insurer is accurate
  • Provide any false or misleading information to your doctor, employer or insurance carrier
