Each on the job injury should be reported, even if it is just in the first aid book. Without that how do you prove you were injured at work?

If you didn't report the injury when it happened and your employers don't have a record of it and you didn't get medical attention for it at the time it happened then there's no proof it actually happened or that it occurred where you say it did. If that's what happened then yes it's too late for you to get any additional coverage or other assistance from your employers.
