What documents should you bring to your first consultation with a work accident attorney?

 

Were you injured on the job? There are different types of documentation you should give to your work accident attorney so he or she can help you file your work injury claim.

 

To recover the maximum financial compensation for your work-related injuries, you need concrete evidence that proves:

 

  • the cause of your injury
  • the economic impact your injuries have caused, as well as
  • the non-financial losses you have endured as a result of the work injury

 

Although workers' compensation is a no-fault system, to file a work injury claim in Florida and know the different types of compensatory damages you are entitled to, you need to prove that you were injured at the workplace or during a work-related accident.

 

To establish your right to financial compensation when you file a workers' compensation or personal injury claim, our work accident attorneys at Advocates USA has compiled a list of 7 documents that will be useful to bring during your first free case evaluation for your personal injury claim:

 

  1. Work accident report.  After sustaining injuries at the workplace or performing duties for work, you need to report your accident to your employer. Having a work injury claim is vital to prove your injuries were work-related and maintain your workers' compensation eligibility.
  2. Police report.  If you were injured in an auto accident during work-related duties and the responding police officer provided you with a police report, ensure you give a copy to your work accident attorney.
  3. Photos.  If you have any photos from the accident scene, your injuries, or property damage, they could be key evidence in your work injury claim. 
  4. Medical records.  If you filed your accident report with your employer, you typically are eligible for workers' compensation. And any medical expenses you have endured as a result of your work-related injuries, you should be able to recover. If you file a personal injury claim, your medical records can be used to prove your financial loss as well as the non-financial effects of your injuries. 
  5. Communication with your employer or insurance company.  Any correspondence with your employer or its insurance company must be kept and given to your work injury attorney. 
  6. Keep all receipts.  When you file a personal injury claim, you can seek compensation for most of your injury-related expenses, not just your medical expenses.
  7. Your personal notes.  After any accident, it is in your best interest to keep a journal. Write down everything you remember about the accident, your injuries, pain levels, how your injuries impact your life, and your limitations as a result of your injuries. Keep these notes in a safe place so you can give them to your personal injury attorney. 

 

Providing an attorney with this information during your free case evaluation will help him or she assess your claim and to better understand the issues that may follow. The sooner the work injury documentation is collected, the sooner the workers' compensation claim can begin, and you will start your journey to recovery.
