Give Your Supervisor Notice of the Injury
One of the first things that injured workers should do is notify their employers about the injury. Under the law, you have only a limited amount of time to do this. If you fail to notify your employer within 30 days of the injury, you could lose important benefits.
Getting the proper health care is also important. We urge our clients to get the care they need and support them to make sure that this is possible.

While you aren’t required to have an attorney to file for workers’ compensation, it's in your best interest to do so. The New York State Workers' Compensation Board and the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industry have strict standards regarding what injured workers must show in order to receive workers' compensation. If you fail to prove that you meet those standards, your claim could be denied.
