After any work-related injury or accident, it is essential to establish a proper record in order to have your claim recognized correctly and receive all possible benefits. To do this, you’ll need to take a few steps.
Notify your Employer
If you are injured on the job, it is extremely important to notify the appropriate person or department at your work immediately. Make a written incident report and always ask for a copy.
Seek Medical Attention
If possible, go to the emergency room. If it is not possible to go to the emergency room, see a physician immediately. In Ohio, injured workers have the right to choose medical providers. However, the chosen provider must be certified by the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation (BWC) and be willing to accept payment through the worker’s compensation system.
