Let's face it, after a serious work injury you have to be focused on your recovery, health and medical treatment. But you're worried and stressed about not getting benefits to replace the income you are losing because of the injury.
And you know the workers comp adjuster has way more experience than you do - she deals with hundreds of cases every week.
You only have one case.
So before you give the adjuster a recorded statement (that will be used to deny or delay your benefits based on a high school sports injury or some other nonsennse they ask you about), sign any medical release forms (that will give them access to every doctor's visit you've had since birth, and divulge family history and other personal details that have nothing to do with a torn rotator cuff, for example) or file a claim form (after an injury in DC, they may send you a Maryland claim form to sign "so we can start paying you" - but filing in the wrong jurisdiction could cost you hundreds of dollars every single week)...
Just do one thing.
