Getting injured on the job is never a pleasant experience. It is likely only to increase the amount of stress that you normally have in your life. This Work Injury To-Do List sheds some light on how to handle a difficult situation.
- Immediately notify your supervisor: In previous posts, we’ve discussed how it is essential to notify your workplace of your injury as soon as possible. This not only establishes your eligibility for worker’s compensation, but it often starts the process of receiving benefits.
- Follow doctor’s orders: Don’t deviate from the medical advice of your doctor. Should you be caught doing something that your doctor specifically told you not to, the insurance company may cut off your benefits. Not only is taking your doctor’s recommendations practical, but it will serve to ensure that you won’t be penalized by the insurance company.
