What to do After Sustaining a Workplace Injury in Flushing
The actions you take immediately following your accident in the workplace can drastically affect the outcome of your claim, which is why you should do everything in your power to document the facts of the incident to prove that you were truly injured and qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. After sustaining a workplace injury, you should first notify your supervisor or employer, and he or she should document the incident and call an ambulance to the scene of the accident. From here, you should ask any witnesses of the accident for their contact information so they may corroborate your claim at a later date. You should then take pictures of the unsafe condition that caused your accident, if applicable, and ensure you receive immediate medical treatment. Once you are treated, ask your doctor for all documentation surrounding your injury and, finally, retain the services of a knowledgeable Flushing workers’ compensation attorney who can walk you through every step of the workers’ compensation application process.
Statute of Limitations
Regardless of the circumstances of your injury, it is critical that you do not wait to pursue legal action. The statute of limitations for workers’ compensation claims in Flushing and New York State is, generally, two years, which means that in most cases, you cannot wait any longer than two years from the date of the incident to file your claim. We are ready to begin the process on your behalf today.
