- State statutes require that an employer must file a First Report of Injury whenever an employee claims to have been injured at work.
- Whether or not the employer disputes the claim has no bearing on the employer’s obligation to file the First Report of Injury with its insurer.
- Filing the First Report of Injury does not admit liability.
- Failure to file the First Report of Injury or late filing of the First Report of Injury may subject the employer to penalties and/or lawsuits under workers’ compensation law.
