What to do after an accident at work infographic

What Do You Do If You Have an Accident at Work?

You should be trained in safety protocols and how to react to an accident in the workplace. However, if you are like many other Americans, then your employer only briefly covered these safety topics during your hiring or training courses, and now you do not know what to do if you are hurt in a workplace accident.

For a quick refresher, you should always do the following after an accident at work:

  • Tell your employer: As soon as you can after your workplace accident, inform your employer about what happened. You do not need to dive into the details, but you do need to give them the overall concept, such as “I was climbing the ladder when I fell.” Telling your employer face-to-face is fine but informing them in writing is ideal. The same day of your accident, you or someone you trust should email your employer or supervisor to create a digital paper trail.
  • See a doctor: Your employer could have a list of urgent care medical providers who can see, diagnose, and treat you after a workplace accident. It is imperative that you see a medical professional as soon as possible, whether they are in your network or not. Depending on your employer’s insurance plans, you might even be allowed to see your own doctor.
  • Call an attorney: Once you have been treated for your injuries, you should start to think about how to approach your workplace accident from a legal angle. Call a local work accident attorney and tell them what happened. If they can work on your case, then they will want to call your employer quickly to instruct them to preserve any evidence they have regarding your accident, like security camera footage and internal injury reports. Without this instruction, a workplace can freely discard evidence, sometimes within just a few days of the accident.

How Much Do You Get for a Work Injury?

The compensation you can receive through a successful work accident claim will be unique to your case due to a variety of changing factors. Everything from the extent of your injuries to your regular income can affect the final value of your claim. Predicting how much you can or will receive is impossible.

However, you can feel more confident in your claim and its potential value by working with an experienced lawyer. Using our talents and years of experience, we can carefully calculate the damages you are owed and plan on how best to get them, either through a settlement or litigation. We will want to capture compensation that pays for past, current, and future medical bills, past and future lost wages, and your undue pain and suffering.
