Hurt at Work? Take These 5 Steps

Have you been injured on the job? For a lot of us, we don’t have a plan in place for a work injury until we need one. If you have found yourself hurt on the job, it can be a confusing and difficult time – especially if your injuries are severe. At Philpot Law Firm, our attorneys understand the gravity of these types of situations. We know it can be debilitating in more ways than one. That’s why we’ve put an easy 5-step list together for what you should do if you’ve been injured at work:

1. Seek Medical Care

First and foremost, seek medical care immediately. Obtaining medical care both onsite and at any follow-up visits will document the extent of the injury. Be certain that you report ALL body parts affected by the injury and be as detailed as possible.

2. File a Report

Once you are out of harm’s way, report the injury to a supervisor or human resources person for documentation. Give them the details of the accident and fill out any paperwork required.

3. Contact Insurance

If a third party’s actions have caused you to be hurt at work, be certain to document the accident with their insurance carrier. Our attorneys can help you deal with insurance as well!

4. Keep All Documentation

Be certain to keep all follow-up doctor visits and thoroughly document all injuries and treatments.
