When Can I See a Doctor?
Get Answers from an Orange County Workers’ Comp Attorney

IS YOUR INJURY AN EMERGENCY?
If your injuries require emergency medical treatment, call 911 or head to the nearest emergency room as soon as possible. Your employer must make sure you have access to emergency treatment immediately and may tell you where to go for treatment. Be sure to inform the medical staff that your injury or illness is job-related.
If your injuries are not an emergency, you should first report the injury to your supervisor or some other figure of authority immediately. For injuries which develop over time, such as tendinitis, be sure to report your injury as soon as you feel symptoms or have reason to believe that it was caused by your job. The sooner you report your injury, the more likely you will avoid problems and delays in receiving your benefits. In fact, if you wait more than 30 days, you could lose your right to benefits entirely.
