If one of your employees is injured on the job, they may need to file for workers’ compensation. After they tell you they were injured on the job, it’s your responsibility to send their paperwork to your insurance carrier. In some states, your employee may need to file a separate claim, too. To find the laws in your state, visit the Department of Labor’s website.
After You File a claim
If your insurance carrier accepts the claim, they will approve it and assign an adjuster to the claim. Your adjuster will be able to tell you how to submit medical bills for payment and what other documentation may be needed.
