Knowledge is your key to a smooth claims process. Knowing the life cycle of a claim helps you navigate the workers' comp system. Find out what to expect after you report your injury to your employer and learn about your responsibilities.

Can I go to my own doctor?
Each state has a different framework for medical treatment under the workers' compensation system. Your state may require you to go your employer's choice of doctor.

When will I know if my claim was accepted?
Generally you will hear from a MEMIC claim handler in 24 hours, gathering information about your injury. The number of days MEMIC has to review your claim is stipulated by state law, but many determinations about acceptance are made within a few days.
