The injured worker must report to his employer that he had an injury within 180 days of the accident.  (There are some exceptions for longer reporting where the injured worker did not know his condition was caused by the accident.  This is usually due to a miss-diagnosis by the doctor.)

To report an injury, the injured worker is required to tell his Supervisor, HR Department or Boss that he was injured.  It is not the injured workers responsibility to complete the paperwork for the insurance company or Labor Commission.  An oral report meets the reporting requirement.  However, if your employer is refusing to complete the paperwork, or is refusing to send you to a doctor, there is a problem.  Contact the Labor Commission (801) 530-6800 or contact us immediately.
