The following forms need to be completed and submitted to EMPLOYERS when a work-related injury occurs:
- Form E 1.2 Employers’ First Report of Injury. You need to complete this form and send a copy to EMPLOYERS and the New Mexico Workers’ Compensation Administration within 10 days of knowledge of any alleged work-related injury or occupational disease that results in more than seven days of lost work. This form must be filed even if your company disputes the worker’s claim of work-related injury or occupational disease. Please provide a copy to the employee and keep a copy for your records.
- Wage Statement. This form enables us to calculate the correct compensation that may be owed to your injured employee. Please complete the form and submit it to EMPLOYERS within seven days after your knowledge of any work-related injury or occupational disease that has caused your employee to be disabled for more than three calendar days.
- Accident Investigation Report. This basic accident form should be completed by the employee’s supervisor/manager as soon after the accident as possible. Please send the report to the following EMPLOYERS address as soon as it has been completed by the supervisor/manager: EMPLOYERS Claim Department, P.O. Box 32036, Lakeland, FL 33802-2036. You should keep a copy on file for your records.
The adjusting of the claims in this state are handled by Broadspire. Once a claim is reported to EMPLOYERS, the report will be sent to Broadspire for assignment.
