    Hello, I have a quick question. About 3 weeks to a month ago I got injured at work. Work told me they were not going to file a report until I told them I went to a doctor, and that they need to reimburse me. Then they decide to file a report, now im in the process of the workers comp company of reimbursing me. So now, about two days ago this injury started aggravating me, and I had to leave work. Turns out they think its a herniated disc, and I have an MRI for next week. Mind you, work never sent me to a workers comp doctor to get me cleared. Can my MRI still fall under workers comp?

    File a report with whom?

    "They" being...your doctor?

    It is unquestionably possible.

    Sorry, that could have been more clear. When I asked the leaders in duty if they were going to file a accident report they said no. So when I came back the work and told the leaders that they needed to reimburse me, then the leaders decided to fill out a accident report, and get workers comp involved

    “they” being the specialist my doctor sent me to, yes.

    Your employer broke the law by refusing to file the injury report.

    If you ever get injured on the job again (I hope not) and you are faced with the same issue you get to your cell phone and call the South Carolina Workers Comp Commission for assistance.
