What To Do When An Accident Happens At Work
When you are working and suffer any form of injury the most important thing to do is document it with your employer. You should immediately stop what you are doing and see your supervisor or human resources department and report the incident. Make sure to complete a written statement describing what happened and retain a copy for your records. If there was a witness to the incident, make sure to get that person’s name and include it in your report. If you can, have that person provide a statement as well.

What Am I Entitled To Be Reimbursed For?
If you are injured and have missed at least three consecutive days of work in RI then you are entitled to four benefits under the workers compensation act. You are entitled to have all of your medical bills paid that are related and medically necessary. You are entitled to lost wages based on your average weekly wage. If you have a scarring claim, you will be compensated for the scar. If you have a permanent injury, you will be compensated for the permanent condition based on your doctors rating of the injury. It is our job to make sure you get every benefit you are entitled to under the workers compensation act, both quickly and efficiently.
When Do I Have A Third Party Claim As Well?
If someone other than your employer is responsible for your injuries then we can bring a claim against that negligent defendant on your behalf as well as against the workers compensation carrier. For example, what happens if you are a delivery person and while you are working, your vehicle is rear-ended and you are injured? You are allowed to pursue a claim against the person who rear-ended you for personal injuries as well as receive workers compensation benefits.
