- You must tell your employer (which can mean a supervisor or someone in management) that you were injured within 30 days of the injury (then hire an attorney as soon as possible).
- If your employer has selected a health care provider, you must go to your employer’s health care provider for the first ten days of non-emergency treatment. After that you can see your own doctor.
When you tell your employer you have been injured at work your employer must:
- Fill out a First Report of Injury and give you a copy.
- Pay your claim within 14 days or contest the claim.
