You can fill in the PDF form with your computer and then print it on paper. You’ll find the form here.You must personally sign the notice and therefore you cannot send it electronically to the Finnish Mutual Insurance Company for Injury Indemnities.

It is not necessary to enclose receipts or other inquiries about the costs and losses incurred in the notice of injury. These are investigated separately, in the case of a compensationable injury.

Sign the notice of injury form

If the claimant is of full legal age, the notice of injury is to be signed by the claimant himself or herself or by a person authorized to sign the notice on behalf of the claimant.  If signed by another person, the notice must be accompanied by the relevant authorization.  If the claimant is underage or otherwise incapacitated, the notice of injury is to be signed by the claimant’s guardian.  In the case of underage persons, such guardian is usually the parents.  If the injured person has died, the notice of injury may be filed and signed by a beneficiary of the death estate.

By signing the notice of injury, the claimant gives consent to the treating institution or another body mentioned in the consent clause of the form to provide the Finnish Mutual Insurance Company for Pharmaceutical Injury Indemnities with the information and documentation needed to handle the claim.
