Today's post comes from guest author Brody Ockander from Rehm, Bennett & Moore.
Because truckers are always on the go, sometimes they may not remember to report their injuries right away. Instead, maybe the trucker will simply finish the route and decide to get checked out later, completely forgetting to inform the employer.

The moral of the story is if you’re hurt, tell your employer immediately. Communicate via your Qualcomm, call in, radio, email, or do whatever it takes, even if you have to call from the doctor’s office.
Even if your injury seems insignificant at first, you’ll still want to give your employer notice. You’ll be better off in the long run.
