Written reports of workplace accidents

Every year in Pennsylvania, a large number of employees are injured at work. This is hardly surprising. After all, accidents can happen anywhere, to anyone, so no matter how diligent and careful you are, there is always a chance that you could become caught up in such an incident. As a result, you may be injured, potentially preventing you from returning to work for a while, depending on the severity of the injury.

Whether it is a minor scrape or a major incident, it is important to report the matter to your employer. You may even be able to claim workers' compensation for your injury. Your employer should have coverage for this and may provide you with a form to fill in or ask you to provide specific details of the accident before you make your claim.

As this article on employment law mentions, it is also possible that your employer will need to write up a report of the incident. Copies of this may then need to be sent to their insurance company and the office of the workers' compensation board. Failure to do so can result in a fine, so it is within your employer's interests to comply with this requirement.

Of course, these things do not always work out as planned, so it can be helpful to have some support. An attorney may be able to assist you with your claim and help you to gather the information you need before filing. He or she may also be able to support you through the remainder of the legal process as you pursue the compensation you deserve for the injuries you have suffered.
