In the event of an injury, the employee should seek medical attention through the company’s designated physician. Time is of the essence when filing for workers’ compensation claims.

  • The employee must take note of the time, date, specific details of the injury and if there are witnesses to the incident.
  • The employee should notify the company of the injury in writing if at all possible.
  • The employer must file a first report with the insurance company within ten days.
  • The insurance company will review the claim.
  • The compensation should be approved within a reasonable amount of time.

While it seems simplistic enough, there are endless mistakes people make when filing a workers’ compensation claim. Let Ramos Law Firm help file your claim. Our workers’ compensation lawyers can help you file a claim, appeal a rejected claim, and even renegotiate late or low-paid compensations. Our firm’s experienced workers’ compensation lawyers can help ensure smooth filing and an equitable return.
