What To Do After A Work Accident

Dedicated Personal Injury Attorneys For Worker’s Comp in North Carolina


Trusted Representation for Worker's Compensation Cases

Workers’ compensation enables employees, who have suffered injuries or illness at their workplace, to obtain payment benefits to cover medical expenses and financial damages caused by the accident. In order to successfully recover workers’ compensation, there are important steps you need to take.

The first two things you need to do are the following:

Inform your employer about the accident and your injury

Seek immediate medical attention

Document everything you can with pictures, videos and written notes

Write a statement to your employer within 30 days of your injury. Include:

Date of the accident

Injury suffered

Description of how the accident and injury occurred

Make sure you keep a copy for your own records. If your employer fails to report the injury, you could file a claim with the Industrial Commission within two years of your work accident. In order to do so, you must file Form 18 with the Industrial Commission along with the copy to your employer.

The attorneys at Hyland + Padilla are here to help you maximize your potential recovery*
