What are the first steps to take after an injury on the job?

The first thing an employee should do if they’ve been injured on the job is to report the injury to the employer and seek immediate medical attention. Not only is this important for health purposes, but also to document the injury. After receiving the necessary treatment, an employee should report the injury to the employer as soon as possible. Critically, there is a 10-day time frame to notify an employer in order to avoid an initial denial of a Workers’ Compensation claim.
