What To Do After A Work Accident

 Personal Injury Attorneys For Workers’ Comp in North Carolina


Trusted Representation for Workers' Compensation Cases

Workers’ compensation enables employees, who have suffered injuries or illness at their workplace, to obtain benefits to cover medical expenses and wage loss caused by the accident. In order to successfully recover workers’ compensation, there are important steps you need to take.

The first two things you need to do are the following:

Inform your employer about the accident and your injury

Seek immediate medical attention

Document everything you can with pictures, videos and written notes

Write a statement to your employer within 30 days of your injury. Include:

Date of the accident

Injury suffered

Description of how the accident and injury occurred

Make sure you keep a copy for your own records. In general, to preserve your right under the workers’ compensation act, you must file certain forms with the industrial commission within two years of your work accident. A form 18 should be filed with the Industrial Commission and a copy served to your employer. In order to avoid missing any file deadlines, you will need to speak with a qualified attorney. Contact us today, to help you with your specific case.
