If you were working and suffered an injury or a work-related illness, you may be able to receive worker's compensation. Most employers are obligated to carry workers' compensation insurance.
The key to a successful workers' compensation claim is evidence. You will need to prove that your injury did occur at work. A workers' compensation attorney can help you gather the necessary evidence to support your claim.
Evidence To Collect
The more evidence to help support your claim, the more likely are to have a successful claim. You and your lawyer will need to gather evidence such as:
- Eye witness statements and surveillance videos
- Photos of the scene of your accident
- Any doctor's notes, tests, results, etc. from your injury or illness
- Your statement given to your supervisor
These are just a few examples of evidence you will need to help with your claim. Your workers' compensation lawyer will be well-versed in what documents you will need.
