When should I tell my employer about my work-related injury?

When you get hurt on the job in New Jersey, it is important to let your employer know as soon as possible that the accident or injury occurred so that it can be properly documented and investigated. The sooner you report the accident, the better it will be later on during the case. There are many factors that need to be considered when you get injured at your job and therefore, it is beneficial to tell your employer immediately. You will need to tell your supervisor or personnel office so they can be aware of any time from work that you may miss as a result of your injuries. After you notify your employer of your injuries, they must inform the company that provides them with insurance that you will need treatment. You may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits depending on your injuries. You will have to have your workers’ compensation application approved by your employer’s insurance company. It is important for you to be aware of the fact that your employer or their insurance provider has the power to choose the physicians that will assist you in the examination and healing of your injuries. After the insurance company has been notified, they will determine whether or not you are eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
