DWC-1 Injury Report Filing Recommendations
Updated On: Nov 07, 2014

If you are injured on the job and need to file a DWC-1 (1st Report of Injury) follow these guidelines for describing your injury:

DO NOT self-diagnose --> stay generic and use language such as "injured leg" or diagnosed with cancer".

Whoever signs the report will be contacted later and asked to narrow it down.  The original report needs to remain generic so that it does not appear that a treating doctor can provide his diagnosis as the official diagnosis.

Remember to keep a copy of all of your paperwork for on-duty injuries.
