Preparing to Meet with a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer (Pt. 1)

December 16, 2014
Here are some things you can do to prepare to meet with a workers compensation lawyer. This can help you get the most out of your initial consult.

Preparing to meet with a workers compensation lawyer can help you get the most out of your initial consult and can get you on the path to financial recovery.

After being hurt at work, pursuing a workers’ compensation claim with the help of a lawyer can:

  • Be critical to your recovery
  • Provide you with the guidance you need as you make your way through the complicated Colorado workers’ compensation system
  • Help you obtain the full amount of benefits to which you are entitled.

The first step in this process, however, is meeting with a workers compensation lawyer for an initial consultation. In this blog series, we’ll provide you with some helpful tips for preparing to meet with a workers compensation lawyer.

While you do not, of course, have to do anything before you consult with an experienced workers compensation lawyer like Jennifer Bisset, taking even just a little time before your first meeting with an attorney can help you get some more specific answers about your rights and options while possibly even facilitating the start of your claim.

Documents Preparation: What to Bring with You

If you have time to gather some important documents related to your work accident and injuries, here are some of the documents to compile and bring with you so that the workers compensation lawyer can review them:

  • The official accident report (if there was one)
  • Your medical records, including documents related to the diagnosis of your work injuries
  • Your medical bills related to any treatment you’ve undergone for your work injuries
  • A copy of the written report submitted to your employer (if you have already done this)
  • Any documents you have received from your employer’s insurance company
  • Recent paystubs or a recent bank statement (which can help give a workers compensation lawyer give you more precise answers regarding the possible amount of your benefits if you are ultimately approved for them)
  • Your employee handbook (again, if applicable).
