How to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim

To file a workers’ compensation claim, you must begin by reporting your injuries to your employer. The processes you must follow to file a workers’ compensation claim can vary depending on the policies at your place of work. Generally, injured employees are provided with claims forms upon reporting a work accident. Filling out claims forms typically involves answering questions about your injuries, potential treatment, and other aspects of your workers’ compensation case. After completing the forms, they must be returned to your employer. Your employer will then submit them to their workers’ compensation insurance company for approval.
