Inform your employer of the details of your accident

Most workers in Pennsylvania have been injured on the job at one time or another, even if it has only been a minor scrape. Accidents at work can be extremely dispiriting, especially if they cause serious harm. Not only do you have to deal with the recovery process and potentially being unable to work for a while, but the incident could also reduce your confidence within your job. Meanwhile, you have medical bills and lost wages to contend with, all when you should instead be focusing on your recovery.

This is why workers' compensation is so important. If you are injured at work, it is usually sensible to consider making a claim as soon as possible in order to ensure you receive the support you deserve. Furthermore, there may be a statute of limitations in place, affecting the amount of time you have to file your claim, so it is important to act quickly.

Your employer may even be able to assist you as he or she should have workers' compensation insurance in place and may have a particular form for you to complete regarding your accident. As this article on compensation claims mentions, the details you are likely to be asked to supply include the following:

  • The time and date of the incident and how it occurred.
  • Where the accident happened and who was involved.
  • The nature of the injury.
  • Details of any treatment you have undergone for the injury.

If you have been hurt in an industrial accident, filing a claim could be your best option for reducing the financial burden of your experience. An attorney can advise you about how you might proceed and may be able to assist you in deciding on the best course of action to take. He or she may also be able to help ensure that you submit your claim in time and with all the necessary details for you to pursue the remuneration you deserve.
