What sort of information should be supplied in a workers' compensation claim?

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 treating 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 the circumstances in which a work-related injury or illness occurred are 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 a doctor linking the injury to work or witness statements (if an event was witnessed that is relevant to your claim).
