If you were injured on the job, your employer is required under workers’ compensation law to reimburse a portion of your wage loss and pay for medical treatment. If your work injury results in a temporary or permanent, partial or total disability, your employer may have to pay workers’ compensation benefits for a certain period of time.
You should see a doctor right away. Sometimes, an employer will claim that an employee’s injuries were caused outside of the job. Seeing a doctor immediately will improve your chances of recovering from the insurance carrier.
