You're not looking for simple ways to manage Bakken's
workers compensation; you're looking for awesome ways! Here are three such methods:
- First thing: Remember, it is illegal for Bakken to retaliate against an
employee for filing a workers compensation claim. That means that if you
are injured in any way on the job, you should file the claim immediately
without fear of retaliation. If you wait, your claim can be denied because
it will look as though you were not hurt enough to say anything.
- Second thing: Bakken cannot tell you if you are injured or not. If you
are injured it is up to you to file a claim. They are not allowed to refuse
your claim of injury, only a judge or insurance company can do that. If
they try to, your next callshould be to an attorney.
- Third thing: Go see a doctor as soon as possible. Without a doctor to substantiate
your claim, it would seem that you were not severely hurt, and there is
no reason that you could not get back to work. At the very least a doctor
should be able to tell you if you should return to work right away or
if you need to get some rest. If Bakken would like you to see their insurance
paid doctor, you should do so. Do not give their insurance company any
reason to deny your claim.
