Can workers comp be collected if no report was made at time of injury?


Last week my husband slammed a box into his stomach while at work. It hurt but because he figured nothing much would come of it he said nothing. That night his abdomen ached. Over the last week that ache got worse but he kept assuming it was a pulled muscle. This morning he went to the hospital and found out that his appendix bust. The surgeon says it looks like it's been like this for about a week and that it's likely a trauma caused it. So how do we go about explaining this to his employer and starting workers comp?
