Reporting Injuries to a Supervisor
Some people think that reporting injuries to a supervisor could negatively impact their job security. Check out this video to find out what you should do.
Do I need to report my work-related injury to my manager?
Just last week, someone called me from South Carolina that had experienced a serious injury on the job. They were very concerned about reporting that injury to their supervisor because they were afraid they were going to get fired. No matter how difficult it is, if you have a serious injury, and you know your body, you have to report that injury and give the employer timely notice. Otherwise, you could lose your rights, and you may have further medical problems including things like surgery that you have to deal with, even though you never wanted this to happen. As difficult as it can be, you have to report your injury in South Carolina. I would urge you to consult or retain an experienced South Carolina workers’ compensation attorney that knows all the different ins and outs of South Carolina law. We will be glad to help you with that to protect your rights, so feel free to call our office.
