What to Do Following an Accident at Work

If you experienced an injury at your workplace due to your job duties, there are several steps to take so that your chances of receiving proper compensation are increased:

  1. First, inform your employer about the injury and see what benefits you are eligible for. There is generally a short amount of time that you are given to file an accident and receive workers compensation. Even if you feel the accident wasn't serious, report it anyways so that your employer takes new safety measures.
  2. Then, see your doctor for a complete medical evaluation. This will help identify any significant injury and give further proof of your claim. If necessary, go to the emergency room immediately. Second opinions are often covered under workers comp, so be sure to take advantage of this if you feel that your diagnosis was inaccurate.
  3. Take notes and document everything surrounding the injury. This includes all forms of communication ranging from your employer to your doctor. Be sure to follow up with your claim, as you are entitled to a copy of the workers comp filed by your employer.
  4. Give us a call for a consultation. We can recognize areas of opportunity that you may not. We are professionally trained to get the most out of your lawsuit.

Your eligibility to file a claim is not restricted to injuries which occurred in the office. Workers whose job duties require them to drive can seek compensation for a car accident and may be able to sue the other driver for negligence.

    "The best attorney out there by far!"
    I was rear-ended in an auto accident when I was pregnant and Mr. Porter assured me he would take care of everything and he did. I was very pleased with the response and the time he put into my case and how quickly it was settled. The office staff is the best. They are very outgoing and kind and they are always friendly! If your looking for an amazing attorney look no further. I know that in the future if I will need an attorney I will not hesitate to use The Law Offices of Jason K. Porter. They will not let you down.

    "The best attorneys you will find. I love you guys!"
    Two very scary DUI cases in my life. The first involved a wreck, the second with a very high BAC. Jason Porter and Gary Shumard, you are both so very amazing and you have saved me so much havoc on these cases. Reduced to reckless on the first, and on the second, saved me from having the interlock system order in my car, another 10 days of immobilization, and more jail time. From the beginning, these two kept my anxieties calm through this process and the outcomes took all that load off. If you are financially strapped, trust me, they will work with you on that too. Sincerely.

    "Thankful to this firm for their hard work and dedication!"

    I unfortunately experienced a terrible accident and was hurt. I reached out to Jason Porter’s law firm, as he has helped my father in the past and is a trusted attorney in my family.

    Unfortunately, the process had a slow start due to many moving pieces. Hildy stepped in and things got moving IMMEDIATELY! She is amazing. So sweet, so understanding, so educated and intelligent regarding her position. Because of her, I felt assured and heard.

    Thankful to this firm for their hard work and dedication!

He is a top-notch attorney in Jacksonville and very professional & honest when dealing with each scenario of my cases.

    "Highly recommend him if you need legal advice"
    Mr. Porter is an excellent attorney. He helped me and my teenage son through a very difficult situation. He was right there immediately ensuring we had representation. He even called to follow up to ensure we were ok. He is very passionate about helping his clients. He also does not try to charge you if he knows you don’t have a case. He’s very honest and a great person. Highly recommend him if you need legal advice. Kelley

    "They were honest, personable, reasonable, and effective."
    I retained The Law Offices of Jason K.S. Porter, P.A. a few years back. They were honest, personable, reasonable, and effective. I would recommend a consultation for any legal matter. If it is out of their field of expertise, they will advise you of that as well.

    "Jason Porter is superb."
    This is my personal experience with Jason porter. I was in need of an attorney. I didn't have a clue on where to go...who to call . or even if they would take the time to listen to my case. Jason porter was extra observative Very calm .. cool.. and collective. Very laid back . But don't let that fool ya. He's a very good attorney. He took our case and since the 1st visit he has lived up to everything he said he could do. Since every case is different. I truly feel as if he took our case personal This is so rare to see in attorneys nowdays Having a attorney that puts aside the so called business mentality to put people first is what I received even tho our case was small I'm sure there will be someone with a need for a attorney and I'm not some rich guy . I live paycheck to paycheck every week but I was treated like royalty respect . And I felt like my case was important I will never forget what he done with my case and the personal decision he made at the end that showed me beyond a doupt that Jason porter is a attorney on our side . Fighting for the clients not a paycheck . not afraid to stand up n fight and never break a sweat his cool demeanor breaks it all down so it's very understanding ... I can't tell you who to call for your attorney but if u read this. then u need to stick with Jason . I'm sure you'll love him and I'm sure you'll be happy Thanx again Jason porter you won my vote for attorney of the year 2015 and I hope I can help someone with there decision on choosing an attorney With Jason's law firm you won't go wrong
