What if No One Saw You Get Injured?
Are you worried about qualifying for workers’ compensation benefits?
Do you have a witness who can verify your workplace accident?
If no one saw you get injured, it can be tricky to verify your story but it’s not impossible with the best workers’ compensation attorney in Colorado.
Workers often perform their duties in a group or in the same area with other workers. There’s a strong possibly a witness can verify your story. However, some employees work alone or out of sight of other workers, so verifying their story can be tricky.
The more documentation you can provide about the accident and your injury, the more difficult it will be for the insurer to deny your claim. Here are some things you can do to strengthen your claim:
- Report the injury to your employer as soon as possible.
- When you report your injury, be as specific as possible about the circumstances of your accident. Provide everything when reporting your accident down to the last detail, including the time and place of the injury and how the accident happened.
- When talking with your doctor, make sure to explain all of your symptoms and your work limitations. Be honest and thorough. This will get vital information into your record, making it more difficult for the insurance company to deny the extent of your injury.
