If you have been injured on the job, immediately report the injury to your employer. If you don’t, you will not be able to get your medical bills, wages, or a settlement paid.
In most situations, the employer is responsible for your medical bills even if the injury was your fault. You have the right to choose your own doctor!
An injured worker is entitled to lost wages after he or she is off work seven days with a doctor’s excuse. If you have a permanent injury, which a lawyer can evaluate based on your doctor’s report, your attorney will demand money from the employer’s insurance company.
