Back To Main Menu

THE DO'S

  • Do immediately inform your employer of the accident.
  • Do tell your doctor about all body parts involved.
  • Do keep your doctor appointments and follow his treatment advice.
  • Do ask about having your own doctor authorized to treat you if you are not satisfied with the employer's doctor.
  • Do seek legal representation if you do not get to see your own doctor.
  • Do seek legal representation if there is delay in payments while you are unable to work.
THE DON'T'S
  • Don't forget to tell your employer you think you had an accident.
  • Don't assume that because you were previously hurt in the same area of the body that you do not have a claim for workers' compensation.
  • Don't assume that because you previously settled a workers' compensation claim you have no benefits for a new injury.
  • Don't assume that because your injury was not sudden, but was caused by the wear and tear of your employment, that you do not have a claim.
  • Don't be afraid of being fired or mistreated for filing a claim.
  • Don't work beyond your physical limitations.
  • Don't assume that because you only worked a short time, or your employer went out of business, that you have no claim.
  • Don't settle your claim without knowing your rights.
  • Don't be afraid to seek legal advice if you have questions about your claim. Remember, the insurance carrier is not considering your best interests.
