What Matters In Your Injury Case

Too many people think that their injury is not bad and that they will not need to file either a work comp claim or injury claim against the insurance company.

The problem is that it is usually too late to change your mind if the injury becomes worse or there are costly medical tests or treatment required.

A few simple steps will protect any potential Illinois Workers’ Compensation claim or injury case you may have.

Report your injury immediately and make a written report.

Make copies of all your reports.

Go to the doctor right away.

Tell the doctor how the injury happened, where it happened, and all the body parts involved.

These straight forward, truthful actions will preserve any future claim you may have.

If your injury worsens, a written injury report at the time of the accident proves where it happened and what happened.

The doctor’s records are evidence of the need for medical treatment and what body parts were injured.

Many injury cases are lost at the initial stage of the accident.

Delay in reporting and seeking medical treatment gives the insurance company the opportunity to plant doubt in the Judge’s mind.
