    1. Always fill out an injury report (on the clock by the way) if there is any doubt.

    2. No manager or sup. is qualified to give medical advice (even though they think they could work at the Mayo Clinic)

    3. IF you do fill out an injury report make sure you make copies of EVERYTHING.

    An injury like that could have long term affects that become more apparent later on.
    After you tell management i believe you have until the next day or so to request them to take you to their doctor/emergency room.
    They dont like reporting accidents because their insurance goes up. Sooooo, dont trust them when they send you to that lil " waiting room" cuz you said you got hurt.
    Ask for a shop steward and dont answer any of their work related or personal questions.

    remember this and remember it well. i fell or got injured doing "what the hell ever". And I need to go to the medical center to get checked out. IF YOUR MANAGER OR SUP SAYS NO OR SIT DOWN FOR A WHILE AND SEE. PULL OUT YOUR PHONE AND DIAL 9-1-1. THEN LET THE CERTIFIED MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS HANDLE IT. BECAUSE IF YOUR MANAGER SAYS NO OR ANYTHING YOU THE EMPLOYEE REPORTED IT TO UPS SO YOU DID YOUR JOB BY REPORTING IT. SO AT THAT POINT ITS OUT OF THERE HANDS AND IN THE CERTIFIED MEDICAL PERSONNEL HANDS. then get a lawyer and sit home watching porn or drinking beer until your lawyer says come back to work on workers comp.

    Will ups would of blamed you and most likely fired you. However from an injury stand point you most likely could of had a concussion. The manager should of sent you to get checked out
