Injured Workers

Process for Injured Workers

 Report Your Injury

Report your injury immediately to your employer or supervisor. Failure to report your injury to your employer within 30 days may jeopardize your ability to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

 Get Medical Care

The employer or insurer is required to provide the medical treatment and care to cure and relieve the employee from the effects of the injury.

 Benefits Available

In addition to medical benefits, an employee may be entitled to temporary total disability benefits and permanent partial or permanent total disability benefits.

 Resolve Your Case (Claim)

If you believe that you have not received all benefits due to you and you have contacted your employer or the insurance company and the problem still has not been resolved, you may wish to review your options.

 Appealing the Decision

Once an employee has gone through the hearing process and an administrative law judge has issued an award, the employee has the right to file an application for review with the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission within 20 days of the date of the award.
