    Your manager knows about it , you must also have a witness I bet , in the future, fill out a report no matter the injury , the. Dr - manager will deny anything!

    Who says a report needs to be filled out instantly?
    I think you could still fill one out considering you notified your manager immediately after it happened.

    @Softconcrete , I would go in next shift and tell the manager that medically sat you down for 10 , you were a bit light headed and weren’t thinking clearly that day and you want to fill out a report ,, you were to shaken up that day and wasn’t thinking clearly ,, if he gives you crap , call the local ,, I’m sure your fine but in case headaches show up , you have a paper trail ,, always always report

    Looks fine. Nothing to worry about.

    You have at least 30 days to file an osha recordable injury.

    You reported it. That was good. If you have persistent or reoccurring headaches it could be from a concussion. You can go to your doctor and he will send you for (a CAT scan, etc) tests to see if you have a concussion or bleeding on or in the brain.

    Tell them it's been a problem since that injury on the job if that is the truth.

    Don't worry about the backlash. They only care about themselves. You are a number and a piece of meat.

    Been there 8.5 yrs and havent figured that out yet?

    His cure for everything was peptol-bismo

    You don’t have any state comp laws?

    Go get checked out tomorrow. Go in Monday and tell them you saw a doctor on Sunday. Issue solved.

    You may have had a mild concussion, which you already worked following it, so too late now. At this point, there is really not anything to do about it.

    Concussions, mild or not, are no laughing matter.

    Why is it too late? Does your state law say once you return to work, you are no longer injured?

    I am aware.

    The OP ought to do some googling and follow some of the info found. My daughter has had 2 severe concussions and a couple of mild ones. That last was serious enough that her doctor told her to quit racing dirt bikes. It took her 3-4 years of healing before her short term memory issues faded. She she spend weekends in low light and when she was starting to feel better, taught herself to play the guitar. Turns out that learning a musical instrument can help repair many of the connections that concussions disrupt.

    Happened on Tuesday, according to the OP. Most states have a reporting time limit. Even if a manager witnessed it, going in Monday and saying, "I want to report the injury from last week." The manager will likely say, "What?? I don't remember any injury from last week."

    He reported it right away. I have one year to file a claim. Per state law.

    The law varies by state. RTW states have very little time to report.

    True, but I doubt any state is less than 30 days to file a claim.

    I have a nephew who has played soccer his entire life. AYSO, high school and a full ride scholarship for college. Now, he coaches a traveling team.

    I never knew until a couple years ago that he sustained 7 or 8 concussions, a few serious. Now, I worry about his future.

    center manager's are not doctors . My first center manager tricked me for the first three years saying he was cirtified to give me my DOT physical instead of missing work for the test. Everything was going fine until I asked a co-worker why DOT requires a prostate exam .
