The application process to obtain workers’ compensation benefits is complex and time-consuming. Injured workers should have an attorney who knows the workers’ compensation law and is ready to stand with them throughout the entire case. Without professional representation, many injured workers fail to receive the justice and compensation they deserve.
Starting The Workers’ Compensation Process
If your injury is job-related, you are covered under workers’ compensation regardless of who caused the accident. You should begin the process by reporting the details of your workplace injury to your supervisor and requesting the claim form that the law says an employer must provide. At this point, request that your employer refer you to a medical care provider. However, if the injury is serious, first seek immediate medical attention and then notify your employer, in writing, as soon as possible. It also pays to talk to our experienced lawyer.
