In addition to ensuring the best outcome, some steps are required to be completed within certain timeframes after a work injury occurs or is known.

Getting treatment for your injured worker

Immediate treatment of the injury could include calling 911, providing first aid, and/or sending the injured worker to a physician in State Fund’s Medical Provider Network or their predesignated physician.
