What to know when filing a workers' compensation claim

As you may be well aware, having workers' compensation is a critical part of any well-rounded benefits package. Its primary purpose is to protect you and provide financial support to you and your family should you ever be involved in a work-related accident that leaves you injured and unable to perform your job duties. At Gatlin Voelker, PLLC, we have helped many employees in Kentucky to file workers' compensation claims following incidents at their workplace. 

Understanding what to pay attention to when filing your workers' compensation claim is imperative to helping your chances of receiving the compensation you deserve. Failing to pay attention to the details, ignoring seemingly repetitive requests and even procrastinating filling out a claim, could void your claim and leave you grappling to find a way to provide for your needs on your own.

According to WCF Insurance, your first priority when you have been injured at work should be to attain the medical attention you need before your condition worsens. Some things to remember along the way include the following:

  • Disclose that the accident was work-related to your doctor or attending physician.
  • Do not waste any time reporting the incident to your employer, paying attention to include every detail.
  • Be honest and use integrity when relaying your story. Bending the truth can often be found out and result in your claim being denied.
  • Monitor and track your progress and share the results with your claims adjuster and your employer. 

When you remember these important aspects of filing a workers' compensation claim, you can be better prepared to build a compelling case. For more information about work-related accidents, visit our web page.
