Is My Injury Serious Enough to File a Claim?

Here are some factors to consider when deciding if your federal work injury is worth filing a claim with OWCP:

Even if you’re unsure about the claim’s worth, it’s advisable to report the injury to your supervisor as soon as possible. This protects your rights and allows you to seek medical attention authorized by OWCP.

Consulting an attorney specializing in federal worker’s compensation can also be helpful. They can advise you on the specifics of your case and the likelihood of a successful claim.
