If you were injured on the job and your employer carries workers’ compensation, you can file a workers’ compensation claim. Examples of common workplace injuries include back injuries, neck injuries, shoulder and knee injuries, head injuries and repetitive stress injuries.
In the event your employer does not carry workers’ compensation (this is known as a “non-subscriber”), you may be able to file a personal injury claim against your employer. For workplace accidents caused by a third party, you still have the right to recover workers’ compensation benefits. In many instances, you will be able to bring a separate lawsuit against that party as well.

What should I do after an accident?
After an accident, you must report your injuries to your employer immediately. The longer you wait, the more it can hurt your chances of receiving a fair compensation. You should not give a recorded statement to anyone, including insurance companies, without speaking to an attorney about your rights.
Take these steps after an accident to ensure that you have a strong case:
Identify any witnesses who observed your accident.
Write a detailed report of exactly what happened (and how your employer was at fault).
Attend all doctors’ appointments and follow their orders, so as not to jeopardize your claim.
