What should be included in my claim?

You need to provide the following information in your form:
- They type of injury and affect parts of your body
- Date, time, and location of the injury
- Parties involved in the accident
- How the accident took place
- Medical treatment you have received
Once your employer files your claim with their insurer and the state workers’ compensation board office, your claim will be evaluated by the insurer and you will be notified by an administrator about whether your claim has been accepted and for how much compensation.
