Workmans Comp in Cincinnati: Claim Basics

Jun 14, 2011
1 min read

Starting a workman’s comp or BWC claim is actually quite simple. The filing of the first report of injury form (or “froi”) and supporting documentation from your doctor is all that is generally required to get started.

It is always a good idea to stay in contact with your claim specialist, particularly right after your injury, to make sure the BWC has all the supporting materials it needs to get your claim started off on the right foot. Making sure the correct diagnoses are recognized and that your wages are set correctly, for example, are good things to keep a close eye on.

Bear in mind too that if you do not agree with a decision by the BWC and/or your employer you may have a right to appeal the decision to the Industrial Commission.
