What to Do After Being Injured on the Job

What Should You Do After a Work Injury in Illinois?

Step 1: Report Your Injury

It is important to report your work-related injury to your supervisor, manager, or human resources department.

Step 2: Seek Treatment for Your Injury

You need to be seen by a doctor even if you feel okay in the moment. It can take time for symptoms to develop and a doctor can ensure you arenot suffering from a dangerous internal injury. Seeking treatment is also important for establishing a medical record for any necessary workers’ compensation or third-party personal injury claim that arises from your injury.

Step 3: Save Your Talking forYour Attorney

Now is not the time to say “I’m fine”, “I’ll be okay”, or “Sorry, that was my fault.” These seemingly innocent comments in the aftermath of your injury could harm your ability to collect the benefits and compensation you deserve.
