- Report you accident to your employer. This is a basic responsibility of the injured employee in any workers compensation case. The sooner you let your employer know that you suffered an accident at work, the better.
- Make sure you get the best medical care possible, especially in an emergency. If you are seriously injured, go to a local hospital Emergency Room, and make sure you tell the emergency personnel how you were hurt.
