Experienced Assistance With The Process For A Workers' Compensation Claim

As your attorney, Gerald W. Bosch is prepared to work hard to safeguard your interests during every phase of the legal process.

As soon as you suffer a workplace injury, seek medical attention and follow these steps to apply for workers' comp benefits:

  1. Notify your employer about the accident and work injury. Your employer should then submit a First Report of Injury to the state.
  2. Get your Report of Work Ability (RWA) form, with your doctor's assistance. It is important to tell your health care provider that your injury is work related. Your doctor should complete an RWA. The timely submission of this form to your employer and its workers' compensation insurance carrier can affect your access to wage loss benefits.
  3. Return to work if able, or ensure your employer has your RWA and wait for the Notice of Insurer's Primary Liability Determination. This is a form the insurance company files with the state to either accept or deny medical benefits, rehabilitation benefits and wage loss benefits to you. Keep a copy of this form for your record, as it includes the insurance adjuster's information, your claim number, your compensation rate if you apply, and the reasoning behind the decision. You may choose to challenge the decision.
  4. Considering getting legal help. If the insurance company denied your claim, approved it for less than you believe you are entitled to, or you have any other questions or concerns, send us an email. Attorney Gerald W. Bosch can advise you at any point in the process. Your first consultation is free and we provide further legal services strictly on a contingency fee basis. This means you will not owe any attorney's fees unless your case is won and the benefits you deserve have been obtained. If your own discussions with the workers' comp insurer are not productive, Mr. Bosch is fully prepared to go to court to protect your right to obtain benefits that reflect your losses.
