Working hard gives us better life and rewards. We love to work because it helps us to meet our needs and enjoy life. But injury at work gives stress. Work injury is a source of problem. It cripples you physically and drive you crazy. It may happen to you. What you need is to know how to deal with work injury while getting better.
Every worker has different concerns after work injury. If you are a parent, you don’t even think of your injury, but first, the welfare of your family. If you have a lot of responsibilities, you think about your bills. What makes you anxious is the responsibility!
Health is wealth. You can always make money from your skills and hard work but not good health. Your first priority after work injury should be your health! Consult a medical professional or go to the emergency if you are badly hurt.
First, you must be evaluated of your injuries so immediate attention can be given. Thereafter, you should be guided on the right thing to do. In the meantime, read “How To Manage Injury” to begin your recovery.
RIGHTS & PRIVILEGES
Always remember that you have the right to a worker’s compensation with work injury. It covers your salary, medical bills, and other expenses. Legally, an employer must have a policy to cover employees in case something happens.
You don’t sue your employer!!! You claim for the benefits of an injured worker, as the law requires.
Tell your doctor of your work injury, whether it is a one-time injury or repetitive injury due to the nature of your work. You also have to inform your employer about it, which in turn should process the claims to the insurance carrier. But if your employer refuses to act for some reason, then you should ask someone who knows the process and willing to help.
