FILING A WORKERS' COMPENSATION CLAIM
As soon as you are injured, seek treatment immediately. Delays in seeking medical treatment not only can cause your physical condition to deteriorate, but can also hurt your claim. It is also extremely important to contact your employer immediately after you injured and inform him or her that you were hurt. Finally, you must file a written claim for workers' compensation benefits. The information in your written claim is very important and can be confusing and complicated.
