Do I Have a Work Comp Case?

Following an injury at work, you may be wondering whether your condition merits a case in court.

The quick answer is that no one factor either guarantees or rules out whether you should pursue a workers' compensation claim. It depends on a number of interrelated factors. If you think you may have a case, you should always contact an attorney, who will be able to better inform you based on your specific circumstances.

Here then are the primary pieces of information that, taken together, will build the basis for your claim. When contacting an attorney, having this information together will help your claim move more quickly.

  • Employer name, location, and contact information
  • Employment history at the employer
  • Location of accident
  • Name of employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier
  • Pay rate at time of accident
  • Summary of the accident
  • Summary of medical issues arising from the accident
  • Treating physician basic contact information
  • Prior attorney basic contact information (if any)

Typically, most of this information will be easy to remember and volunteer without any documents. It can help to have some documents at hand when contacting an attorney to help you remember less salient details. Letters or invoices from your doctor's office can provide your doctor's name and contact information, as well as specific medical language. A paystub from your employer will give all necessary information about wages and employer contact information.

In our step-by-step guide to navigating workers' compensation, we provide advice for each stage of the successful pursuit of a claim, starting with what to do immediately after an accident in Part 1.

If you would like to contact us, please visit our contact page. Even if you have taken your claim to a different law firm in the past and have been denied representation or you were displeased with the outcome, we pride ourselves on offering a level of dedication and work ethic that puts us in a different class.
