How Do You Get Started?
According to the Department of Labor and Employment, specific steps need to occur when you’re on the job including:
- Report your injury to the employer immediately. If the injury is not life or limb threatening, the injured worker selects a doctor from one of two medical providers that have been designated by the employer to treat the injuries. The physician selected by the injured worker becomes the authorized treating physician for purposes of this injury. Unless physically or mentally unable to do so, the injured worker must also notify the employer of the injury in writing within 4 working days of the injury or there could be a reduction in benefits. However, you do have up to two years to file a claim.
- The employer notifies its insurance company (insurer) of the injury within 10 days of having been notified or having actual knowledge of the incident. This often takes the form of an Employer’s First Report of Injury.
