Once you have filed your compensation claim along with the required documents, we will send you a receipt confirmation on which the name of the compensation officer assigned to your case will be indicated.

If your claim is accepted, your compensation officer will indicate to you, in writing, the indemnities to which you are entitled and the amounts you will receive.

If you disagree with a decision by your compensation officer, phone him or her for additional explanations. If you still disagree with the decision, you have the right to contest that decision.
