Regardless of the type of workplace injury involved, you should report the accident and injury to your supervisor as soon as you are able. You may be required to seek medical care from a certain doctor, as well, in order to preserve your right to workers’ compensation benefits. As with any other type of injury, you should try to take photos of the accident scene. Noting any witnesses to the accident can also be valuable so that your workplace injury lawyer can get their account to support your claim.
Some injuries result from a single, sudden accident—such as a fall from scaffolding or an electric shock. Other types of workplace injuries are more subtle and occur over time—such as carpal tunnel or respiratory illness caused by inhalation of toxic chemicals. The type of workplace injury involved may influence whether your employer challenges your right to workers’ compensation benefits. Where the injury occurs over time, employers tend to be more likely to challenge whether the injury was actually sustained in the workplace.
