What Evidence Do I Need for My Case Against Domino's?*

Workplace accidents are possible even in the seemingly most innocuous of places. Employees of pizza giant, Domino's, are exposed to daily risk when they work in pizza kitchens manipulating pizzas in and out of hot ovens.

When accidents do inevitably happen, it is reassuring for all workers to know that their employer has workers’ compensation insurance in place to provide compensation for medical treatment and lost earnings.

Insurers don’t hand out workers’ comp. payments unless they are sure that the injury was caused by a genuine workplace accident. It is important to have evidence showing how the accident took place, when it took place, the details of the injury and proof of all costs associated with the injury. A workers’ comp. lawyer can help with your claim.

Accidents at Domino's

Domino's is a major pizza chain. Employees make and bake the pizzas. They serve them to customers in Domino's restaurants and deliver them to customers by motorcycle and van. Accidents can happen at any stage of the delivery cycle.

In the kitchens, burns from hot pizza trays and ovens are the most common injury, while slips, trips and falls are the most common accidents in the restaurant itself. These sorts of accidents cause broken bones, dislocated joints and possibly back and head injuries.

Delivery drivers are often under pressure to be in a hurry and are at risk of traffic accidents. The risk is greatest for Domino's motorcycle delivery riders who could face very serious life threatening injuries if hit by a larger motorized vehicle.

Evidence You Should Collect

Insurers rarely accept claims without accompanying evidence that the accident was a genuine accident that caused injuries at work. Make sure that your Domino's manager knows about the injury and that this is recorded officially.

There should be other workers at work who saw your accident and can act as eyewitnesses. If you were injured while delivering pizzas, you may need to ask eyewitnesses to provide a written or oral statement confirming the details of the injury.

Photos that you can take yourself are useful evidence, especially if they show any obvious external injuries in context. The restaurant you work in may have security cameras and it is possible that useful video footage of your accident was recorded.

Obtain a copy of the doctor’s report after an initial examination which should have recommendations for treatment and estimated recovery time. Collect all receipts, bills or invoices for anything to do with your medical treatment including medication, doctor’s fees, surgery, tests and scans.
