How to Start Your Workers’ Comp Claim

You’re a hard worker. You’re proud of your work and proud to contribute to your team. Maybe you don’t want to make a fuss about your injury.

But when you’re hurt on the job, you need to report your incident to your boss as soon as you can.

That’s how you start the process of getting workers’ compensation benefits.

You’re entitled to these benefits under the law. Workers’ comp was created to help you in exactly this situation.


To get your workers’ comp claim started, report your injury now. You have a 30-day deadline after the date of your incident.

At Mitchell & Associates, we’ll provide an initial assessment of your case for free.

How Your Claim Becomes Official

It’s your employer’s responsibility to file an initial report of your injury, which gets your benefits started through their workers’ comp insurance company.

You should get a copy of this report. Even by asking for it, you can show your employer that you’re on top of the workers’ comp process!

Do You Need a Lawyer?

When you have a workers’ comp claim, you might face a lot of little battles:

  • The insurance company doesn’t pay for all your treatment.
  • Your checks for lost wages come late.
  • A claims adjuster decides to end your benefits prematurely.

A lawyer can fight those fights for you, so you can focus on recovering from your injury. Workers’ comp has its own separate legal system. You don’t have to face it alone.

At Mitchell & Associates, we’ve seen too many people get pushed around by the system. So we made it our mission to help people like you navigate workers’ comp.
