Injured at Work? What Do I Do?
You must report the injury to your employer. Tell your supervisor, foreman, or manager that you had an injury and insist on filling out a written report. If you do not document the injury, it will be harder to prove later. Your employer should file an Employer Report of Injury or Illness form (LDOL 1007). Get medical attention the same day if possible. Your employer can request that their doctor evaluate you, but you still have a right to choose your treating physician.
