Should employees sign any documents related to their injury?
When employees are injured on the job, they should first report the injury. Once the injury is reported, employees should be cautious when dealing with their employer's insurance company.
Because the insurance company has interest to limit the amount of payments, it may try to persuade injured employees to sign documents that take away some of their workers' compensation rights. In most cases, employees should not sign these documents until they consult an attorney.
