Do I Need To Seek Medical Attention After a Work-Related Injury?
Yes, this step is not only essential for your health, but it also creates a documented record of your injuries. The medical records you gather can help substantiate your workers’ compensation claim.
Besides Medical Records, What Other Information Do I Need To Collect?
In addition to medical records, you should gather information such as witness statements, accident reports, and any communication with your employer or their insurance company about the injury you sustained in the workplace. This documentation can help strengthen your workers' compensation claim.
How Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Help?
A Wichita workers’ compensation lawyer from our team can help in navigating the complex legal procedures, ensuring your claim is correctly filed, gathering the necessary evidence to prove that you got injured while on the job, negotiating with insurance companies for fair compensation, and representing you in hearings or appeals if the need arises.
Can I File a Lawsuit While Receiving Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
In most cases, receiving workers' compensation benefits bars you from filing a lawsuit against your employer. That’s because workers' compensation is a no-fault type of insurance, which is designed to be the exclusive remedy for workplace injuries. That said, there may be exceptions, especially if a third party is involved.
What Are Examples of Situations Where Filing a Lawsuit Might Be the Best Option?
Let’s say you got injured by a third party, such as being run over by a delivery truck at the workplace. In that case, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the driver and recover damages through their insurance company. The same applies if your employer doesn’t have workers’ comp insurance, and yet they are legally obligated to. That would make them directly liable for your injuries, allowing you to file a lawsuit.
