When an individual has experienced an injury or an occupational disease in the workplace, it is important to give
immediate notice to the employer about the injury. Employers are required to le a First Report of Injury (FROI) within
ten (10) days of having knowledge of any injury.
Claim Form
Pursuant to Va. Code §65.2-601, a claim for specic benets must be led within two (2) years from the date of injury.
Even if the Claim Administrator is voluntarily paying benets, rights are not protected unless there is an Award
Award Order
If the Claim Administrator accepts the claim, an Award Agreement is sent to the injured worker. Once signed by all
parties, the Award Agreement must be led with the Commission for entry of the Award Order. An Award Order protects
the injured workers rights to benets.
