How Long After an Accident Do I Have to Report it to My Employer?
Letting your employers know that you were in an accident is essential to your case.
Reporting an accident to your employer can have a significant impact on your case, and it is important to do so as soon as possible. In this article, we will discuss the reasons why you should inform your employer of your accident, the impact it can have on your case, and how it can help you when filing a loss of wages claim.
Always Inform Your Employer of a Workplace Accident
According to Nebraska law, employers have a duty to provide their employees with a safe working environment. If you are involved in an accident while on the job, it is important to inform your employer as soon as possible so that they can take steps to protect other employees from similar accidents. Additionally, if your employer is aware of the accident, they may be able to provide you with the necessary medical treatment and accommodations to help you recover.
Furthermore, it is important to inform your employer as soon as possible because it could affect your eligibility for workers’ compensation benefits. If you fail to give notice right away, you could be denied benefits. If the accident occurred while you were on the job, reporting your accident to your employer provides a track record to support your claim.
