What to Do When an Employee Is Injured

  • Obtain essential information as listed in our Workers’ Compensation Claims Kit.

All claims that incur medical treatment costs, even minor treatment such as first aid, must be reported, regardless if they are paid by your office or TDIC (as required by the Workers’ Compensation Insurance Rating Bureau of California).

  • Once you submit your claim, a TDIC claims representative will contact you as soon as possible to verify information, ask questions, explain coverage and begin processing.
  • Use our online resources to download state-specific workers’ compensation forms and find a network medical provider or pharmacy.
