When you have suffered a workplace injury, your employer may be responsible if they failed to provide you with the required safety procedures or equipment for a safe work environment.
On-the-job accidents are often not reported right away. Such incidents must be reported to your manager as soon as possible to avoid losing claim value. Tell your manager immediately about the injury and how it happened. An injured employee who does not notify their employer about the incident, in writing, within 30 days after the date of the accident may lose the rights to workers’ compensation benefits altogether. In extreme cases such as occupational disease, the employer must be notified within two years after disablement, or within two years after the employee found out the disease is work-related.
