File a Workers Compensation Claim
Where an injury at work occurs, the incident or condition causing the harm should be immediately reported to the correct supervisor at the job site. Upon reporting the accident or repetitive work exposure, the employer must provide a workers compensation claim form known as form DWC-1. The should be filled out by the injured employee and provided to the employer. On the claim form there will space to explain when, how and where the injury occurred and the body parts affected. Once finished, the employer is required by law to finish the form by completing their portion and sending it to the workers’ compensation insurance company. The claimant should ask for a copy of the completed form as well. At that point, the claim is on file with the insurance carrier and the law requires that medical care/treatment be provided for the job accident effects until the claim is accepted or denied, no exceptions.
