When it comes to my workers’ compensation claim, what are my responsibilities?

It is the responsibility of an employee to immediately give notice of an injury or accident to their respective employer, as there is a 30 day statute of limitation for reporting the accident. Medical treatment is provided by the employer, but it is falls on the employee to actually accept that medical treatment. Employees will also have the responsibility of filling out NCIC Form 18, SGWCP-2, and other forms.

The process of filing for workers’ compensation can be another, unwanted burden when already faced with a debilitating injury. If you would like more information on how a Fayetteville workers’ comp lawyer of Scudder & Hedrick, PLLC, can help you with your claim, contact us today at 910-488-1600.
