Preserve your rights. See the doctor promptly after an injury.
It is important to report your injury to your employer immediately. Your Employer is required to complete Form 801 – “Worker’ s and Employer’ s Report of Occupational Injury or Disease/Illness” as soon as you tell them about your injury and give a copy of the completed Form 801 to you along with Form 3283, “A Guide for Workers Recently Hurt on the Job”.
See your chiropractor as soon as possible after your injury.
Bring a copy of Form 801 if you have received it from your employer, and the names of any witnesses to your injury. The doctor must work with you to Complete Form 827 – “Workers and Physician’s Report”. The doctor will send this form to your insurance company to open your claim.
Even if you think your injury might get better without care, it is important to tell your employer and see the doctor right away. The longer you wait before reporting your injury and seeking treatment, the more difficult it will be to support your claim if your injury doesn’t get better on its own.
