A person is entitled to worker's compensation benefits if they are injured on the job or become ill as a result of the job. The employee, the employer and the worker's compensation insurance carrier have various responsibilities relating to a worker's compensation claim.
The employee should tell their supervisor that they are hurt immediately, even if they believe their injury is minor and will heal without medical attention.
They should obtain any necessary medical attention. This may include first aid, a doctor visit or an emergency room visit.
They should also maintain all relevant medical and payment records for possible future use.
