If you are injured on the job, nothing is more important than your health. This means receiving immediate medical care, while also understanding the treatment plan you should follow in the days, weeks, and months to come.

With the help of your medical team, it’s your hope that you will be able to return to work in the near future.

At some point, sooner rather than later, you need to look into the finer details of getting workers’ compensation. Generally speaking, this is a three step process:

— Report your injury to your employer and file a claim for benefits.

— Receive the benefits you are entitled to, or file an appeal if you have received a denial.

— Terminate your workers’ compensation benefits when you are able to return to work.

If everything goes as planned, you’ll feel good about the steps you are taking. Unfortunately, if your claim is denied for any reason, it will throw a wrench into the process.
