What happens when I get injured on the job?
- When injured tell your supervisor as soon as possible after the accident occurs never minimize it because it may be worst than you think and especially with regard to back, shoulder or knee injuries.(try to give your supervisor a written statement as to how the accident occurred. Then keep a written copy of the report that you gave to your supervisor
- go see you doctor as soon as possible; if your employer wants you to go to Concentra or another facility like that right after accident go and go see you doctor next.
- file a workers compensation claim at the Industrial Commission of Arizona at 800 West Washington Street in Phoenix, 85007; or go online at cite of the Arizona Industrial Commission;

Most of us have heard the phrase personal injury, but many people may not be sure exactly what it means. A personal injury refers to a situation where someone has been physically or emotionally injured or killed by the wrongful act of another.
A personal injury claim is when the individual harmed wants to get money from the person or company that wronged them as compensation for the harm. This claim may be for negligence, which simply means the injured person claims the wrongdoer was careless.
