What should I do if I get injured at work?
The other day I had a client that called me from North Carolina, saying they wanted to know what to do. They had just gotten injured the day before at work. I told them they immediately needed to report that injury to their employer so that we could document that the injury actually occurred. I also mentioned to them that they needed to get medical attention so that the medical professionals could document the injury. You may even need to go to your own personal doctor to get this injury documented right away. You get the injury documented, for all of the injuries, starting from your head and working your way down to your toes. One reason you have to do this is because if you go to a company doctor, the company doctors aren’t going to be as helpful.
These are some of the things I think you need to do, and then call an attorney right away. It’s very important because there are some written notifications that you also have to do in North Carolina within 30 days, and I’ll be glad to help you with that. Feel free to call my office and we’ll help you in every way we can.
