I just got hurt at work what should I do?
I just started at 84 Lumber as a drywall stocker on my 2nd day of the job I was hit in the back by the crane off a boom truck while helping unloading insulation which was the drivers fault. I've been having back spasms and pain in my back. I left the job ,and today workers comp called me. I never even reported myself, and they said I reported it. What should I do?

You must file for Worker's Compensation if you hope to get paid weekly You have no idea how long it will be before you recover. They will pay all of doctors, medications and treatment you may need plus pay you a weekly benefit. I'm sorry you were so injured...get well soon.
