What sort of information should I supply?

One of the most important aspects of a claim for workers’ compensation is establishing the link between the injury or illness and work.

Sometimes the doctor provides a clear opinion of the link between your work and your injury or illness and there may be no need to provide additional information.

However in some instances how a work-related injury or illness occurred is not so straight forward. You may need to write a statement outlining how the injury or illness occurred and seek additional evidence such as a letter or report from the doctor linking the injury to work, provide witness statements if an event was witnessed that is relevant to your claim.
