When you suffer an injury at work, it is of vital importance that you seek medical treatment immediately. By law, you have the right to leave the job site when you have sustained an injury to seek emergency medical treatment. It is important to keep a record of the doctors that treat you and their reports. Most importantly, be engaged and ask questions of the medical professionals that treat you.
