I didn’t fill out an accident report on the day that I was injured on the job. Is it too late to file a claim for Injury in the Line of Duty?

You must report the accident or incident to the principal or designee before the close of business on the day of the injury but no later than 24 hours after the incident. If you can’t report an injury the chapter leader or designee can do it for you. If you miss the deadline because you are hurt or have other reasonable grounds, report as soon as possible. Speak to your UFT chapter leader or district representative if you think there may be a problem.
