Steps to Take After a Work Injury

If you’ve been hurt on the job, there are a series of steps you can take to protect your rights:

1. Get Treatment

Seek immediate medical treatment for your injuries.

5. See Your Own Doctor

The law doesn’t require you to see the company doctor.

2. Collect Evidence

that proves your injury is work-related: take pictures of the accident site as well as your physical injuries. Write down the name/s and contact info of anyone who witnessed the accident.

3. Report Your Injury

to your manager, supervisor or HR department (preferably in writing) within 30 days from the date of the accident (the sooner the better). If you have a work-related illness, make sure to report it within 30 days from the date you started having symptoms. Failure to notify your employer within this timeframe may hinder your eligibility to collect benefits.

4. Keep Copies of Everything

including out-of-pocket expense receipts, payment stubs-, short- or long-term disability payment stubs, off work or limitation slips.

Your Employer’s Obligations

Under Wisconsin law, your employer must report your workplace injury or illness to their insurance carrier and the Wisconsin Division of Workers’ Compensation within seven days of your notification.

Within three days of reporting the injury to the carrier, you should receive a packet containing a copy of the accident report and information pertaining to the claims process. Let Di Renzo & Bomier take it from here!

Step One

Submit an application for a hearing before an Administrative Law Judge with the Workers' Comp Division of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development.

  • We’ll take this off your plate. A workers’ comp attorney at Di Renzo & Bomier can assist in preparing and submitting the necessary paperwork for filing a hearing application.

  • What you should know: It can take between nine and twelve months for a hearing to be scheduled. During this time, your medical expenses will no longer be covered. Therefore, you will need to notify your physicians and health care providers to bill your group medical insurance.

Step Two

After the hearing application, your case will be handled by the Division of Hearings and Appeals (DHA) through the Office of Worker’s Compensation Hearings.

 

 

 

  • We’ll gather evidence to support your claim. We’ll help show how your injury has impacted your ability to work and earn wages. This may include seeking medical testimony from your treating physician or obtaining a second opinion.

Step Three

Once all the evidence has been gathered and you have fully recovered or your condition has stabilized, we will file a Certificate of Readiness for a hearing with the DHA.

 

 

 

  • We’re here for you. Once a hearing date has been established, we will guide you through the process of settlement negotiations or litigation. In most cases, a settlement is resolved before a court hearing.

How to Appeal a Denied Claim

 

If your Wisconsin workers' compensation claim is denied, Di Renzo & Bomier can guide you through the appeals process. We can help you every step of the way.
