Were you injured on a construction site? Watch this video to learn why reporting construction injuries to management is a crucial step of the claims process.
Should I tell my boss about my work injury?
I got a call the other day from a client in a panic. He was injured at work and his employer called, and wanted to know about what happened, and about him making a claim. He was afraid to get back to the employer because he was afraid that if he called the employer, he would lose his job. You need to notify your employer of the happening of the accident as soon as possible. That’s to protect your workers’ compensation benefits. Your employer is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, and that will pay for your medical expenses, and that will pay for your lost wages, but there are certain requirements that have to be met. One of the early requirements is that you notify your employer of the accident as soon as possible.
