What is the first thing I should do if I get hurt on the job?

In order, you should: 1) tell your employer what happened; 2) schedule an appointment with a doctor of your choice, and; 3) call an experienced workers’ compensation attorney like Lawrence & Associates. It’s usually unwise to sign anything for the employer or an insurance company before speaking with an attorney, although sometimes the employer has an incident form they will ask you to fill out. Just remember that anything you say or write down can be used against you, so speak (or write) wisely!
