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.

    "You really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind."
    Over the past month or so I had made a call to the Law offices of Jason Porter because I needed to resolve an issue that occurred over 7 years ago. Once I explained the situation the secretary sent me directly to Jonathan Thacher. All I can say is that Thacher did an amazing job handling my case and I am extremely happy right now. I no longer have to worry about that problem ever again thanks to Thacher. The work was effective and everything went through perfectly. Thank you so much man you really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind.

    "I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough."
    Jason Porter has helped me on two separate occasions and both times his attention to detail really impressed me. His staff is wonderful and easy to work with. The second time I worked with Jason Porter, he turned what I thought was a hopeless situation into a miracle. He literally got me my life back by getting the charges reduced. His experience as a trial lawyer came in handy when he had to work with the district attorney to change the judge's mind on my case. Jason Porter has a calming demeanor and he instilled confidence when going over the details of my case. I tended to be pessimistic, but Jason Porter would always reassure me and keep me positive. I will never be able to thank Jason Porter enough for all that he has done for me and my family. I hope I never need a lawyer again, but if I do I know I can count on Jason Porter to give me my best chance at a favorable outcome.

    "Nicole Carlucci is truly excellent in her profession."
    Attorney Nicole Carlucci was exactly what I needed. I chose her because she is professional, compassionate and fair. She explained everything to me and was really looking out for my best interests. She made herself available to hear all my concerns and questions. Ms. Carlucci made me aware of points that needed to be addressed that I didn’t know about. I would not have been able to get what was needed without her. She went above and beyond which is why I’m recommending her. In addition, she continued to support me with additional needs after the fact. Nicole Carlucci is truly excellent in her profession.

    "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
