Accepted condition

When you file a workers’ compensation claim for an injury or occupational disease, the workers’ compensation insurance company reviews the claim. The insurer then determines whether the major contributing cause of your injury or disease was a work activity. The insurer reviews your medical report to make this determination. If the insurer determines the cause was work-related, then the insurer agrees to accept the medical condition resulting from the injury or disease; such as if you fall while at work and break your leg, the medical condition is the broken leg; and agrees to be responsibile for the payment of benefits on for your claim. The insurer will provide you with a written notice of accepted condition(s).
