Get immediate medical care if your injury requires it. You must inform your employer of your injury as soon as you can.
This can be a tricky part of processing a workers’ comp claim, since states have laws that dictate the number of days you have to notify your employer of your condition; in most states, the limit is thirty days, but varies.
