Mistakes to Avoid in Workers' Compensation Claims

Failure to Report the Injury Promptly

It's important to report any work-related injury to your employer as soon as possible. Delaying the reporting of an injury may impact your ability to receive workers' compensation benefits.

Not Seeking Medical Treatment

Even if your injury seems minor, it's important to seek medical attention promptly. Failing to document your injuries and receive appropriate medical care can negatively impact your workers' compensation claim.

Not Consulting with an Attorney

Navigating the Workers' Compensation process alone can be overwhelming. Consulting with a workers' compensation attorney can help you understand your rights, gather necessary evidence, and navigate potential challenges in the claims process.
