Posted In: DLP Law

If you suffer a work-related injury in Pennsylvania, it’s important that you report the injury in a timely fashion. You should report any injury or work-related illness to your employer or supervisor immediately. You should tell your employer how the injury occurred, the date of the injury and where the injury occurred. Failure to promptly notify your employer of your injury can result in the delay or denial of benefits.
Once you have missed a day of work, your employer is required to report your injury to the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation by filing a first report of injury.
