Give Notice of Your Injury to Amazon
As an injured worker at Amazon, the key is to give notice of your work-related injury to your supervisor/manager as soon as possible. You won’t have a wage loss claim until you give notice. The law requires notice within 120 days or a claim is forever barred. But the sooner the better as the longer you wait, the more likely Amazon will deny your claim. They may get skeptical about where you got injured if you don’t report the injury right away. Written notice is not required by law- it can be done verbally. However, writen notice will be stronger and less likely to be challenged in court before the Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation Judge. Amazon has many workers at its facilities. Work injuries are quite common. Don’t be intimidated to pursue your case. It could mean your earning power is on the line and you want legal representation so that you have a high probability of being successful and getting the wage loss and medical benefits you deserve. Employers are often more worried about their profits than worker safety. But, remember, the injury doesn’t have to be the Employer’s fault to get benefits. If you’re injured in the course and scope of your employment, you are covered! There are only a few exceptions to this. So essentially, we have a no fault system- even if the injury was your fault, you can pursue Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation.
