In the event you are hurt at work or become ill, it is your responsibility to:
■Tell your supervisor that you are hurt immediately, even if you think your injury is minor and will heal without medical attention.
■Obtain any necessary medical attention. Which may be getting first aid, seeing a doctor or going to the emergency room.
■Maintain all relevant medical and payment records for possible future use.
You should act to notify your employer and get medical attention without delay. A delay may negatively affect your health and may even jeopardize your potential workers compensation benefits. Failure to report your injury/illness to your employer within two years
could result in your claim for worker’s compensation benefits being barred. http://www.dwd.state.wi.us/wc/workers/fileaclaim.htm
