These are the steps that can make a big difference in what happens with your claim and the way that you are treated after being injured.
Report your fall accident in the workplace
The very first thing that you want to do is be sure that the accident’s entered into your work’s accident book. This is something that every employer should have and when you record the accident details it will ensure that the record’s accurate.
Get evidence of the fall accident in the workplace
The second thing that you should do is get pictures of the accident scene. This is going to prove what caused the accident, whether it was defective office equipment or machinery. You need to get pictures of the equipment and be sure your boss doesn’t destroy or remove it. Also make sure that there’s the time and date on the picture.
