How to File a Workers' Compensation Claim
Oregon's workers' compensation laws change frequently. Goin Law Group recommends consulting with an Oregon workers' compensation lawyer if you need to file a claim. In general, this process begins by notifying your supervisor of the injury. Oregon law currently requires all workers to notify their employer of an injury within 90 days. Many employers have specific claims reporting procedures you should follow. After notifying your employer of the injury, your employer should ask you to complete a form 801. It is the employer's duty to provide you with a form 801; however, copies of the form 801 can also be obtained by clicking below. A video explaining how to fill out a form 801 is also provided below. After filling out the form 801, you should see a medical professional for your work injury. It is very important you file a claim as soon as possible after the injury occurs. It is also very important you seek medical treatment without delay following the on the job injury.
Steps to Follow if You are Injured on the Job
Every claim begins with a first report of injury. Work injuries should be reported as soon as they occur. Don't rely on telling your supervisor or a coworker. Complete a form 801 and give it to your employer immediately.
Seek medical treatment immediately after a work injury occurs. Do not wait until the next day or allow your employer to convince you to wait before seeking medical care.
