Who should you inform of your injury?

Notification to your employer that you have been injured means that you must inform a supervisor or other management personnel of your injury, including how you were hurt and what injuries you received. As discussed in an earlier post, to prevent denial of your benefits, it is important to provide notice no more than thirty days after you are aware of your work-related injury. If your employer requires you to see a medical provider chosen by the employer, that provider will likely also want to discuss how your injury occurred. This information is also important to tell any of your own doctors or providers when you receive treatment, because those providers will need to complete certain paperwork required in workers’ compensation claims.
