Navigating The Worker’s Compensation Process With Confidence
Filing a workers’ compensation claim involves several steps that must be taken. Let’s take a look:
Step 1: Seek Medical Attention: Immediately seek medical attention for your injury. This creates medical records that provide evidence of your injury and its severity.
Step 2: Notify Your Employer: Inform your employer of your injury as soon as possible. The deadline for this notification varies by jurisdiction. It’s best to notify in writing and keep a copy for your records.
Step 3: Document Your Injury: Start a file for your injury. This should include your written notification to your employer, any response received, and all related medical records. Keeping a journal documenting your injury, symptoms, and any lost work is also helpful.
Step 4: Complete the Workers’ Compensation Claim Form: Your employer should provide the necessary workers’ compensation claim form. This is often called a “First Report of Injury.” Fill this out thoroughly and accurately. Make a copy before you return it to your employer.
Step 5: Submit the Claim Form: Give the completed claim form to your employer. They should then forward it to their workers’ compensation insurance carrier. If your employer refuses to provide or submit the form, you can submit it directly.
Step 6: Follow Up: Your employer or their insurance company should then initiate the claims process. If they deny your claim, or you don’t hear from them within a reasonable time, contact a worker’s compensation attorney at Joe Gibson Law.
