Is Reporting an Injury Difficult?
Reporting an injury is not difficult, especially not for the employee. You simply need to inform your employer of your injury. This can be as straightforward as telling your supervisor or manager.
Once you report your injury, your employer will be required to submit a First Report of Injury form to the employer's workers' compensation insurer. You do not need to fill out this form. It is your employer's job to complete and submit the form.
Do I Need to Report My Injury in Writing?
No, you do not need to submit a report in writing. However, it could be beneficial if you fear that your employer will not take the steps necessary to get you the workers' comp benefits you are entitled to.
Regardless of whether you report your work injury in writing, you should keep a record of all the information you present to your employer and any information you receive in return.
How Soon Should I Report My Injury?
You should report your injury as soon as possible to your employer. If you wait too long, you could lose out on the benefits you need to cover the costs of your injury.
