Injured On The Job – What You Do Next Matters!

Published on February 22nd, 2017 by The Illinois Hammer Injury Law Firm


Injured on the job, report it immediately to your employer. If possible take pictures using your smartphone of any hazardous conditions that caused your injury. If there are witnesses, be sure to get their names and contact information. Follow your employer’s process for reporting work injuries.

Seek medical treatment promptly. Tell your medical provider what happened and be sure to mention the injury was work related. Letting your doctor know you were injured on the job will help in case the insurance company denies your claim. Seeking immediate medical treatment ensures you get the care you need and protects you from the insurance company claiming you had a new, non-work related injury.
