When you get injured on the job, it can be an extremely traumatic experience. Now…
When you are injured on the job you should tell your employer immediately if you are capable of doing so. Telling your employer sets a clear understanding that some incident has occurred and that if there is a resulting injury then there will need to be a worker’s compensation file created.
Common injuries are slip and fall, falling objects, and overexertion. Anyone can slip and fall. It doesn’t take a dangerous workplace to slip and fall while at work. All it takes is a little water on the floor or a misplaced rug. These kinds of accidents may seem small, but they can have a big impact on your body depending on how you land. Falling objects are riskier in more dangerous work environments, but there are always instances for people who work in the retail or service industry. If you work in retail then you are more susceptible to things falling off of shelves especially if you work in stores that sell furniture or home goods. Overexertion can be both bodily and mental. Bodily overexertion can occur when people work mainly with their bodies like truck drivers, delivery workers, or factory labor. Mental overexertion is recognized in California. Mental health is important and should be taken seriously.
If you or a loved one is feeling as if they are overwhelmed from their job or if they suffered from a physical injury then there are three things you need to keep in mind to ensure that you are getting the most out of your worker’s compensation claim.
