What Should I Do If I Was Injured At Work?

Were you injured at work? Many people who have been injured while working at a construction site, in a warehouse or in an office setting may not know where to turn for help. Unfortunately, they may wait too long to find the answers to their questions, and as a result, be denied the benefits they so desperately need.

Do not let this happen to you. For dedicated legal advice and guidance following a serious work accident, contact Jerome, Gibson, Stewart, Stevenson, Engle & Runbeck, P.C. Our firm has more than 40 years of experience representing injured workers in Phoenix and throughout Arizona.

Report The Work Injury Accident To Your Employer

The first thing to do after a work accident is to contact your supervisor. Be very specific about your injury. Explain how the work injury occurred, what part of the body is injured and the extent of the injury. Your employer is required to file an injury report within 10 days of the accident, so it is imperative you speak with someone right away.

Seek Medical Attention

Seeking immediate medical attention after your accident is also extremely important. If you wait too long, your injuries may worsen. Early treatment also allows a physician to examine your work injury and report on its severity. If you wait too long to seek treatment, insurance companies may not believe your injury is serious or that your injury is related to the accident at work.
