USPS Injury Reporting – First Steps To Take
OWCP takes injured USPS worker claims very seriously; as such, you want to make sure to move swiftly and file a claim by first informing your supervisor immediately of your injuries. It’s always a good idea to do this in a timely manner to preserve the legitimacy of your claim because late filing may make it seem that you are trying to weasel into compensation when you’re not really injured, or if injured, the injuries are not as substantial given your delay in informing your supervisor. This takes the form of verbal communication after which you will be provided with medical care. Your employing agency will then provide you with form CA-1 or CA-2, whichever suits your needs. You are required to fill this form objectively and give it back to them so it can be sent to the control office in days. However, if you’re not sure about how to fill this form, please give us a call at 1-855-233-3002 and we’d be happy to help.
