How Long After An Injury Do I Have To Report It To My Employer?
Your doctor will take the necessary information and either submit the injury report electronically or fax a First Report of Injury, Occupational Disease or Death FROI1 form to the MCO within 24 hours.
Once you receive medical attention, if you haven`t already, let your employer know you`ve filed a claim. BWC is here to help you throughout the claims process. If you miss eight or more days of work, a BWC claims service specialist (CSS) will call you within one week of your claim being filed with your MCO.
The information on this page is meant to provide a general overview of the law. The laws in your state and/or city may deviate significantly from those described here. If you have specific questions related to your situation you should speak with a local attorney.
