- Notify your employer: One of the most important steps in filing for workers compensation is to notify your employer as soon as possible. Even if you believe your injury to be minor, you should inform your supervisor of your condition within 30 days of the date of your accident. Your employer will then notify his or her insurance company about your injury.
- Contact an attorney: If you sustain an injury at work, one of the wisest decisions you can make is to contact an experienced lawyer. He or she can review your case, protect your rights and assist you in obtaining fair compensation for your condition.
