If you fell off of a ladder at work you should immediately notify your employer of your injuries. Employer does not simply mean co-workers but rather someone in a position of authority, such as foreman, supervisor or human resources. Though you can notify them verbally of your fall, you should send a written notice within 30 days of the injury so that there is no dispute on whether you timely notified your employer. You can find the Department of Workers Compensation Claim Form here. Many employers require that you fill out their own version of accident forms and reports. Many employers require that you fill out “in-house” accident forms and reports. Make sure you review what they write down and request copies to maintain for your records. If the employer report is not accurate, you can write a letter disputing those portions that are factually incorrect.
If you are a member of a union, also contact your union representative. They can be an ally in protecting your legal rights and making sure your employer does not take any adverse employment actions against you for getting hurt on the job.
