Filing Your OWCP Injury Claim…
To being your OWCP claim, you’ll have to fill out one of two forms. Form CA-1 is for traumatic injury claims, which cover specific injuries that occurred at one given moment rather than over time. Examples include tripping down the stairs, slipping and falling, and the like. Form CA-2 is for a medical issue that has developed over time due to work conditions or activities performed on the job. These include illnesses or diseases related to systemic infection, repeated stress or strain, or exposure to physical or chemical hazards. In general, an occupational illness is harder to receive compensation for, but if you have truly become ill or have a disease due to your working conditions, you should begin filing an OWCP injury claim to get the medical treatment and financial help that you need.
There is a three-year timeline on all OWCP injury claims, but you should file the correct paperwork as soon as possible. If you are seeking lost wages due to your injury, you’ll need to complete other forms associated with your OWCP claim. Any other forms or paperwork you need can be handled by our staff on a case by case basis. You may also receive some forms directly from your employer.
