Evidence You Can Use to Support Your Workplace Injury Claim

WorkplaceIf you have been injured in a workplace accident, you could be entitled to seek monetary compensation for your economic losses through a workplace injury claim. This type of claim, like other types of claim such as medical malpractice and premises liability claims, requires evidence from the claimant that shows how he or she was injured by another party's reckless or negligent behavior. If you are a claimant, you will need to provide as much evidence for your claim as possible.

Some types of evidence can be difficult for you to obtain. If you are unsure about how to obtain a specific piece of evidence for your workplace claim or you need help using it to prove how you have been injured, work with an experienced workplace injury attorney. Your attorney will have the resources necessary to obtain the evidence you need and work it into your claim to help you get the compensation you deserve.

Witness Testimonies

Your colleagues can be valuable resources for your workplace injury claim. Written and oral testimonies of what happened, how it happened, and how you suffered at the time of the accident and after can be used to support your claim.

Photographs of the Accident Area

Photographs showing where your accident occurred and how objects or hazards present led to your accident can be useful pieces of support for your claim. Take as many photographs of the accident scene as possible.

Damaged or Defective Machinery That led to Your Accident

If your accident was caused by a malfunctioning or broken piece of workplace machinery, you will need to prove this. Provide dated photographs of the affected part and the machine itself to show how it harmed you. If the equipment had previously been recalled or has been recalled since your accident, provide a note of this as evidence as well.

Documentation of Your Medical Treatment

How can you expect compensation for your medical bills if you can not show that you received medical treatment? The answer is you cannot. You need to be able to provide clear documentation of your diagnosis, your medical treatment, and any interactions you have had with doctors or other healthcare professionals following your accident.

Client Reviews
I absolutely cannot speak highly enough of CMA Law, particularly of Mr. McMahon, with whom I have had the most experience. My entire family and I trusted CMA with our case following a significant and life-altering vehicle accident, and to say they delivered is putting it lightly. They were reachable & personable at every stage of this arduous, complex, and scary process, made things easier at every stage, inspired us with confidence, and delivered results. If you're looking for a law firm to place the trust of you in your family in, look absolutely no further than CMA - this is your firm. Declan O.
I suffered a severe spinal injury while working as a farm mechanic in the Salinas Valley. The attorneys -Tim McMahon and Mark Sigala were fantastic from the beginning. They fought for me over 3 long years and in the end, we won a difficult liability case against the farm company who was using dangerous equipment. The defendants in the case tried everything to put the blame on me and even claimed I was their employee in order to avoid civil responsibility. Tim and Mark never gave up on me and my case. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are fighters. Adrian A.
