How Do I File an Injury Claim?
After you’ve been injured, don’t dawdle. The faster you report the injury to us, the faster we can process the paperwork and start delivering assistance, support and medical treatment.
The worker’s report of injury is here.
You have up to a year to file. We may consider a late claim after that, but there has to be a good reason.
Better to simply get it in.
Once you’ve filed, your employer has three days to submit their report to us.
So, here is what we need ...
Before we can process your claim we need to know what happened. That demands credible information.
So we want the Worker’s Report of Injury (above).
Note: We only require this report if you sought medical treatment off the jobsite or missed work beyond the day of injury.
The Employer’s Report of Injury.
Note to employers: You must note any incident on the jobsite in case complications arise in the future. These notes will also serve to demonstrate you take site safety seriously.
And the Doctor’s First Report.
Note: This is to be filled out by your doctor.
These forms can be submitted online, by fax, mail or in person.

If your injury returns
If your injury recurs, follow these three steps:
• Report the recurrence to the employer,
• Seek medical treatment immediately and have a report, and all relevant medical information sent to the Board, and
• Fill out this Request to Reactivate Claim form.
If the present problem results from the original injury, compensation may be paid.
