Caution:  filing a worker’s compensation claim does not guarantee an automatic approval for coverage.  Filing a claim with the appropriate documents will ensure a prompt review. 

Filing a Workers Compensation Claim

Employees who are injured while on the job are required to report work related accidents or injuries within 24-hours of the time of the accident or injury.   The employee's supervisor will also be required to fill out a report on the incident.

Submitting a claim starts the worker’s compensation process.  Your claim will be promptly reviewed to determine if the injury is work related.
 
Approved:  If the claim is determined to be work related, your employer will begin coverage and payment for the costs.  Review What Does Workers Compensation Cover.
 
Denied:  If your claim is denied, you will be notified.  If you disagree with the decision about a denial and cannot resolve a claim dispute with your employer, you have certain appeal rights.  See Limitations and Denials.
