What You Need to Prove Your Workplace Injury

A workplace accident can result in debilitating injuries that leave you unable to return to your job. Depending on the situation you might be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits or be able to pursue a lawsuit against a liable party. In either case, you may need to prove your injury to receive compensation.

Evidence you should collect if you were injured while at work:

  • Income verification. You should keep a copy of your most recent pay stubs or other income verification handy in case you need to document how long you have been working for the company and how much you make.
  • Safety and training manuals. If you were provided with any safety or training manuals, you should make a copy or provide them to your attorney upon request.
  • Injury report. Most employers (and the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation) require that you file an accident or injury report within a certain amount of time. You should always document the incident in writing and request a copy of the report.
  • Surveillance footage. Most companies have security cameras located in and around their business. Obtaining a copy of the security footage can prove critical in your case. An attorney can help subpoena this kind of evidence.
  • Eyewitness information. If your coworkers or another party witnessed the incident you should ask for their contact information and if they are willing to make a statement.
  • Proof of your injuries. Medical records and other documents are imperative to show the extent and severity of your injuries.

An attorney can help you gather the necessary evidence to strengthen your case. Without the help of legal counsel, you could end up settling your case for less than it is worth or for nothing at all. An attorney can help conduct an independent investigation to determine what caused your accident and the best course of legal action.
