Key Steps in Establishing a Worker’s Compensation Claim

  1. Regardless if your accident is witnessed by co-employees or not, report your on-the-job accident verbally and in writing as soon as possible. Be sure to get a copy of any written accident reports or statements. When completing the accident report, list all parts of your body that were injured.
  2. Anytime you are evaluated by a health care provider, provide a complete history of all of your symptoms and all parts of your body that have been injured.
  3. Do not post anything relative to your worker’s compensation claim on social media.
