2) Obtain a copy of the incident report filled out by your employer to make certain that the information is correct.

3) Seek medical treatment. Make sure the doctor is fully aware of what happened to you and follow his recommendations on the way to proceed with treatment.

4) If a doctor says you are unable to work, contact your employer immediately with this information.
