As you prepare to meet with a workers compensation lawyer, think about the details of your accident and injuries. Being ready to discuss these is crucial

When you meet with a workers compensation lawyer to discuss your claim, the more specific information you can provide the attorney about the accident, your injuries and the aftermath, the better. This is because, with detailed, accurate information, an experienced workers compensation lawyer can provide you with better, more specific information about:

  • The strengths and value of your claim
  • The challenges your claim may face
  • Your best options for proceeding.

Therefore, if you have a little bit of time before your consultation with a workers compensation lawyer, here are some things you can do to mentally prepare yourself for this meeting:

  • Think about the details related to your employment – In particular, when were you hired? How long have you been working for your employer? Are you full or part time? Has your employment status changed recently?
  • Think about the specific events associated with your accident – When did your workplace accident occur (be as close to the exact date and time as possible)? What were you doing immediately before your accident? Did you receive emergency medical care after the accident? What else may have occurred in the aftermath of the accident? Were there any witnesses to the accident?
  • Think about the details of your interactions with your employer and/or a doctor – Has your employer told you which doctors they prefer you to see? Have you seen a doctor? If so, who and what was your experience? Have you received an official diagnosis of your condition?

All of these details can impact your claim, and being prepared to discuss them can make your meeting with an attorney far more productive and helpful.
