State of Minnesota Claim Submission Requirements

When should a claim/First Report of Injury (FROI) be filed?

In the event of an emergency, first call 911.

A work injury claim should be filed as soon as possible after either the occurrence, or when it is reported to you, or when you have any knowledge of it; preferably within 24 to 48 hours of the occurrence or notice to you, and especially if the injury will require medical attention. If an employee provides knowledge (notice) to you that an incident /Injury has occurred, you are obligated to file a claim on their behalf. The claim can be filed in one of three ways. CLICK HERE

** It is important for you to fill out as much of the First Report of Injury as you can regardless of whether the claim is lost time, medical only, or Record only. This will not only help in setting up the claim faster, but will also ensure appropriate benefits are delivered timely and also comply with the State of Minnesota requirements when the claim is submitted to them.
