The most important way, and also the easiest way, to protect your legal rights is to report your injury to your employer. Most states require that you report your injury within a certain period of time, typically the same day or within a few days of the incident. Depending on the circumstances of the injury, this may not always be possible, but it is important to report the injury as quickly as is practical.
The next step you can take to protect your rights is to file a claim with the workers' compensation court or industrial court in your state. Again, this puts your employer, the court and your employer’s insurance company on formal notice of your injury. CLICK HERE to contact us online.
