While you have up to 30 days from the date of the accident to notify your employer of your injury and file a claim, it is a good idea to take action well before this deadline. The claim process can last for months depending on the insurance company. When you file an insurance claim, the adjusters will try their best to deny you compensation, or limit it to a figure below what you are truly owed. One of our experienced attorneys can deal with the insurance people to make sure you are not denied the benefits you deserve.

It is also in the best interests of other employees for you to file as soon as possible. Reporting your injury will give cause for an investigation of how it occurred. Depending on your situation, your report may make others aware of a safety hazard that could affect other workers.
