In general, it is a good idea to file a workers’ compensation claim for any work-related injury, no matter how small. An injury that you may consider insignificant now could become much worse. Unfortunately, it may be too late to file a claim if the injury does worsen much later and you have not previously filed a workers’ compensation claim.
As a result, it’s important to report your injury or illness to your employer and file a claim sooner rather than later. If you have filed, you will be covered. From there, you’ll want to discuss your claim with an experienced attorney to see if you have a case for workers’ compensation.
