Why is it Important for Me to File My Claim Right Away?
Regardless of the severity of your injury, it’s important to make sure that you take the proper amount of time to seek out medical attention, while also reporting your injury to either your manager, or your supervisor at your place of work.
If for any reason you assume that you should wait to report what happened, please reverse your thinking, as this may unfortunately cause the injury or illness you sustained to be viewed by any managerial individuals as possibly happening outside of work.
Furthermore, it’s important to make sure that when you seek out medical attention for your injury or illness, that you tell your primary care physician that your injury or illness is work related – this is important, so that your healthcare provider can make sure that your treatment is billed in the correct way, as a workers’ compensation claim.
What if My Injury is Reccuring?
If you are suffering from a repetitive stress injury or industrial illness, it’s truly hard to pinpoint when such an injury took place. Generally, the start time is labeled as when you experienced your injury or illness and knew it was work related.
It’s still incredibly important to make sure that you bring any injury or illness to the attention of your primary care physician, so that they can make a record of what happened, and when it took place.
