Compensation attorneys have a lot of experience completing these forms and coping with the

The Claims Process
Prior to a workers compensation claim, the injured worker or their representative must tell the
business that the injury has occurred and provide Employee Benefits Consulting Jacksonville. In a
few cases, a an injured worker will need to submit a written claim form:
•If the insurer requests one
•When the worker needs weekly payments in excess of 12 weeks or medical expenses in excess
•In the event the insurer decides never to start provisional liability payments, or stops making
provisional liability payments, as well as the worker disagrees.
After that step, the insurer will decide if you should accept the claim. Before payments begin, the
insurer will require certain facts and definately will investigate the challenge by questioning the
business and the injured employee. Information may also be sought from your medical doctor
who examined the injured employee. Within seven to be informed of the accident/injury, the
insurer must begin provisional liability payments for the injured worker unless you will discover a
compelling reason to never begin payments.
A claim for workers compensation benefits has to be made within half a year in the date from the
injury in most states. This may be extended to three years in some cases. An employee is not
really qualified for compensation unless notice of your injury was provided to the business at the
earliest opportunity following the injury occurred.
