The Keys to Winning an OWCP Claim
The key to winning an OWCP claim is to have strong evidence to support your case. This includes:
- Medical evidence: This could include medical records, DOL doctor’s reports, and diagnostic tests.
- Work-related evidence: This could include witness statements, incident reports, and job descriptions.
- Testimony: This could be your testimony, the testimony of witnesses, and the testimony of OWCP doctors and medical experts.
In addition to having strong evidence, you also need to be prepared to present your case effectively to the OWCP. This means being able to clearly explain what happened, how it was work-related, and how it has impacted your life. You may also need to be able to answer questions from the OWCP about your case.
Here are some specific tips for increasing your chances of winning an OWCP claim:
- File your claim as soon as possible. The sooner you file your claim, the sooner the OWCP can start investigating and processing it.
