When should I seek medical attention for a work-related injury?

You should seek immediate medical attention if you experience severe pain, significant swelling, difficulty moving the injured area, or if the injury does not improve within a few days of home treatment. It's also essential to report the injury to your employer and consult a healthcare professional who specializes in occupational injuries.
