Steps To Take After A Workplace Injury
Unfortunately, very few employee trainings go over what to do after an accident. Whether your injury is from a deep fryer accident at a fast-food establishment or a crash while driving a delivery van, the steps should all be the same:
First, get medical care. Before you worry about the law, make sure you get any emergency medical services you need.
Next, report the incident to your supervisor. Your report should be formal and include any relevant information about the event, who was involved, any witnesses and your medical care that followed.
Then, gather as much information as you can. This includes any video or photographic evidence, your medical reports, any doctor statements, a copy of the report to your employer and any other information you have.
Finally, Call An Attorney
