It also includes providing compensation to the family members of employers who were killed while on duty at work. When a employee is injured at work it is recommended to make a report of the incident or seek medical attention as soon as possible. A worker usually has up to 30 days to file a work – injury claim to make it more likely to accepted, one can still file a claim after the period, but the insurance company may argue that the injury isn’t as serious since it wasn’t reported right away.
