On the job injuries can happen in a variety of ways. One of the most common injuries occurring on the job are auto accidents. If you have been involved in an automobile accident while you were on the job please call our office today. You may be entitled to monetary compensation for your injuries, time missed from work, and vehicle damage.
Here are some first steps to take when you are injured on the job. As soon as you can, write down everything you can think of that relates to:
- What exactly happened: before, during, and after the incident that led to your injury- time and place, weather conditions, who was present, what was said, how the incident played out, what you experienced and felt, and anything else that you feel may be important to record.
- Extent of your injuries: what injuries you suffered (physical and mental), medical treatment you received (past and future), and the effect of your injuries on every aspect of your work, social, and personal life. This includes visits to the doctor and physical therapist, time missed from work, any planned vacations that were postponed or cancelled, and the effects that your injuries have had on your close family relationships.
Take Notes Throughout the Claim Process
As your claim progresses, continue to keep track of new developments by taking notes after any conversations with your insurance company, medical care providers, witnesses to the incident, and anyone else with whom you discuss important aspects of your case. Write down each person's name and contact information, the date and place of the conversation, and as much as you can remember about what was said.
You should continue to chronicle the day-to-day details of your injuries, including how they impact all aspects of your life, and keep track of your progress toward medical recovery. Making and referring to these notes will help Papa & Gipe throughout the claim process, and can assist in your effort to receive fair and adequate compensation for your injuries.
