Uphold Your Responsibilities & Protect Your Right to Benefits
As an injured worker, you also have responsibilities you must uphold, to the letter, to ensure your benefits are not threatened:
- You have the responsibility to report your work injury to your employer, within 30 days of its occurrence or from the time that you found out it was work-related. If you do not file your claim within 30 days, you could lose your right to workers’ compensation benefits. Do not wait to report and keep a record/copy of your report for future reference.
- You have the responsibility to keep all medical appointments with your authorized treating physician, and to follow his or her orders. Failure to do so may result in a termination of benefits. If you are not happy with your physician, you can request to change doctors.
- You have the responsibility to be truthful in regard to your claim, and to provide all necessary information related to filing your claim or appeal. If you do not tell the full and complete truth, you may find that your benefits will be denied. You may even face fraud charges. If you have questions about what to do and say, you can always ask our attorneys.
