Helpful Tips on Filing a Claim
Early stages of your claim
We have handled thousands of appeals over the past 30 years, and have addressed every possible scenario that can occur in a claim. We believe it's best to do whatever possible to avoid going to appeals, as it can be a lengthy, frustrating and expensive process for the claimant. Some of the most common problems that can occur early on in the claim process can be avoided if you follow these basic recommendations. When reporting your injury to your employer, your doctor and the WSIB, knowing the following three factors will be very helpful for you.
- Time Limits on filing a claim
- Provide details
- Keep a written record
Keep a written record
After your claim has been filed, this will likely be the most important factor in helping you to avoid issues. Be sure to keep a written record of all your interactions with your employer, your doctors and the WSIB. Start by noting the date and time the interaction took place, who it was with, who else was present, the purpose of the interaction and a summary of what was discussed. Our E-TRACKR tool is easy to use and can be extremely beneficial for you.
