What is the normal reporting time when you have a work-related accident?
An injured worker wants to report an accident as soon as possible. However under the law when an injured worker suffers an accident they have up to 30 days to report an accident under normal circumstances.
When an accident happens over time, the reporting requirements are different. You should discuss the symptoms with your doctor, your specific job duties with your doctor and if your doctor feels that it is related to your employment immediately notify your employer.
When there is a hearing loss associated with employment there are further issues with reporting and time requirements.
