According to the State of Florida’s Department of Workers’ Compensation, you need to do these three things if you’re injured on the job:
- Notify your employer immediately to get the name of an approved physician. Workers’ comp insurance may not pay the medical bills if you don’t report your injury promptly to your employer.
- Notify the doctor and medical staff that you were injured on the job so that the bills may be properly filed.
- If you have any problems with your claim or suffer excessive delays in treatment, contact the State of Florida’s Division of Workers’ Compensation at 1 (800) 342-1741.
