If your injury is life- or limb-threatening, please go directly to the nearest hospital emergency room. In all other cases, please report the injury to your employer immediately.
I'd like to see a doctor
Please let your employer know you've been injured and ask for a list of designated workers' compensation providers. These providers have received special training in the care of work-related injuries and will treat you and manage any related follow-up care. If you choose your own doctor, it may result in medical benefits not being covered.
