The importance of filing an employee claim form
Whenever someone is injured on the job, that person should file a claim with his or her employer. The employee claim form will be assessed by the employer and insurance company, both of which might contest the claim.
Even if the employee chooses to visit a personal doctor to diagnose the injury, the insurance company will likely require the employee to undergo an independent medical exam. During this exam, the employee is diagnosed by a doctor appointed by the insurance company, who then reports to the insurance company.
