Yes, your supervisor should have filled it out and they should have sent you to the hospital with forms for the physicians seeing you fill out if you are in the US. If they did not that is a big problem for them.

You need to file for workman’s comp. This protects you by giving you payment when you can’t work. If you file you can’t sue your employer for any negligence in the future.

Also most doctors will help you fill them out and submit them when they examine you. They will also file the paperwork with L&I.

You shouldn’t to unless you are getting denied. But IDK. Some legal websites do offer help.

Go to dol.gov and search worker compensation. Ask your manager to fill out the paperwork—which they should have started for you that day. Get a doctor to sign paperwork somewhere in that process.
