Should I file a workers' comp claim?

If you have been injured while working, you should file a workers' compensation claim. 

How do I file a workers' compensation claim? A claim can be filed through your employer or through your medical provider. 

Should I wait to see if I get better before filing a workers' compensation claim?  It is very important that you do not delay in filing a claim.  You should notify your employer immediately if you feel you have been injured on the job.  If you seek medical attention for injuries sustained while working, you should notify your medical provider of the circumstances surrounding the injury at your first visit.  Your medical provider can help you initiate the filing of the claim.  You should not wait to see if your injury improves to decide whether to file a claim.
