  • Please provide as much detail as possible including:
  • Medical information
    • Diagnosis or medical condition for which you are making the claim.
    • Doctor’s contact information, dates of your visits and any medical tests completed. 
  • Exposure to hazardous substances
    • Employer’s contact information and dates of employment.
    • Type of work you performed and a description of your duties.
