What To Do If You Were Injured Working At Rib City

Hurt Working At Rib City

Working at a place like Rib City can lead to injuries even when the staff are careful to remove hazards in the environment. If you’re a Rib City worker, or worker at another similar establishment, and you get injured while working on the job, always make sure to do these things to make sure you get all the workers’ compensation you’re entitled to:

  • Get Medical Help.
    If you get hurt while working at Rib City, or another similar establishment, you must get examined by a doctor. Even if you don’t think that your injury is that serious get medical help. Sometimes injuries may not appear that serious, but they can get worse later on. And having a medical exam will start a trail of documentation that you will need to prove your injuries. Ultimately, no matter what, you should get medical help whenever you’re injured at work.
  • Gather Evidence.
    The evidence of your injury is important to your workers’ compensation claim. You should get photos or videos of the site where the accident happened and get witness statements from co-workers if they say what happened.
  • Report The Injury.
    Immediately let the supervisor know if you are injured working at Rib City, or any other similar establishment. Your supervisor must fill out an accident report. You should get a copy of that but ask for one if you don’t. The report should include the date and time of the incident as well as what happened.
  • Keep All Receipts.
    If you are required to pay for any expenses related to your injury out of pocket get receipts for all the money you have to spend. Also keep receipts for any co-pays that you have to pay for prescriptions or doctor visits. All of those costs should be reimbursed by workers’ compensation. It’s a good idea to keep pay stubs and your schedule too. If you can’t work because of your injury, you could be entitled to lost wages for the period when you can’t work.
