How to File for Workers' Comp
After suffering a workplace injury, you must report your injury to your employer immediately. The longer you wait, the higher your chances of a
workers' comp denial. Once you've reported your injury, your employer is required by law to provide you with a Division of Workers' Compensation (DWC) Form 1 to fill out and return. As soon as you return the completed form, your employer must then provide it to their insurance company for review so that you can begin receiving payment. After all of these steps, if there is a dispute regarding your claim, you must then file an Adjudication of Claim with the Workers' Compensation Appeals Board within one year of the date of your injury.
