What to Do If You Are Hurt at Work

  1. If you are injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits regardless of fault, payable from your Employer’s insurance company.
  2. Once an injury occurs, notify your supervisor as soon as possible. It is best, but not required, to inform your employer in writing. If you fail to notify your supervisor within 30 days, seek legal advice as it is possible that you may still qualify for benefits.
  3. File a claim with the Workers’ Compensation Board as soon as possible. A claim must be filed within two years of the date of the accident using a C-3 Employee Claim form. It is in your best interest to seek legal advice to accurately complete this form. If you fail to complete the C-3 form within two years from the date of the accident, seek legal advice as you may qualify for an exception to the general rule.
  4. You may also have a claim if you were injured due to occupational exposure or repetitive motion over time. If you think you may have a claim like this, you should seek legal advice to find out more.
  5. It is very important to seek medical care as soon as possible after your injury occurs. Notify your doctor or your local hospital that you were hurt on the job. Follow up care must be obtained with medical providers accepting workers’ compensation as a means of payment. To qualify for continued benefits, a medical report containing the degree and extent of disability is required every 90 days.
  6. If you are out of work due to your injury you may qualify for weekly monetary compensation. The weekly rate may by up to 2/3 of your salary or the state maximum, whichever is less. if you have used up your sick and vacation time, workers’ compensation benefits can be used to restore your time.
  7. If you suffer an injury to your extremities (i.e. arms, hands, fingers, legs, feet and toes), or sustain vision or hearing loss, you may be entitled to a schedule loss of use, or SLU, award. This is a tax-free payment for any permanent damage incurred for those specific sites of injury. You may be entitled to these benefits even if you missed no time from work.
  8. The insurance carrier, or agency providing workers’ compensation insurance to your employer, will be presented by an attorney at every hearing at the Workers’ Compensation Board. We recommend that you speak with workers’ compensation attorneys to further advise you of your rights. Workers’ compensation attorneys will not charge you an attorney fee for your initial consultation. Fees are only charged and paid if a workers’ compensation attorney obtains benefits for you and any fee is only payable out of the award of compensation.
