- If you get hurt at work, always report the injury to your employer as quickly as possible.
- Every workplace is different, but the best approach is to immediately give the employer written notice.
- That notice satisfies only the notice requirement. It does not satisfy the claim filing requirement which requires that a C-3 form be filed with the workers compensation board. Proper filing of your claim is best handled by a workers compensation lawyer, who will complete that C-3 form and get it filed.
- If you’re hurt at work, seek medical treatment. Tell the doctor you were injured at work. The doctor will file a report with the insurance carrier and the workers compensation board, which gets the case up and running.
