Read below to find out what to do if you have been injured on the job and how Cohen & Sinowski, P.C., can assist you with your case to get you the best results.
What to Do If You’re Injured on the Job
After you have been injured on the job, you should immediately do these three things:
- Report the injury to your supervisor
- Request to see a doctor
- Request and complete a workers’ compensation claim form
These three steps are imperative to any workers’ compensation case.
Until you report the injury and the claim form is returned to your employer, your company is under no obligation to provide you with benefits.
Don’t wait to report the incident! A delay in reporting exactly what happened can create serious problems in getting the benefits started, resulting in a loss of income.
Potential Results If You’re Injured on the Job
If you have been injured at work, you may be entitled to basic benefits such as medical treatment, disability payments, vocational rehab, or permanent disability settlement.
- Medical treatment: The insurance company will cover the bills for all treatment required to cure or alleviate the effects of the injury.
- Disability payments: If you temporarily cannot work, you may be entitled to partial compensation for lost wages.
- Vocational rehab: If you cannot return to your usual job, paid training in a new employment may be an option.
- Permanent disability settlement: Significant compensation may be paid out if you can no longer permanently work.

- Slippery floors
- Improper use of forklifts or other machinery
- Assaults and workplace violence
