5 Tips to Keep Your Worker’s Compensation Claim on Track

Once a Worker's Compensation claim has been filed, there are certain time constraints that must be met. If you want to keep your case on track, there are several things you need to do to ensure things continue to move forward in a timely manner.

Accurate Records

Authentic records must be kept. This includes pay stubs, doctor’s appointments, medical bills, medical records, and any witness statements that may have been collected. Keeping accurate records takes the pressure off of your attorney. If you have collected the information along the way, the attorney does not have to retrace your steps during the progress.

Learn All You Can About Worker’s Compensation

It is important to know as much as possible about the Worker’s Compensation process and how it works. If you know how the process works, it is much less likely that you will miss deadlines or lack important information when it comes time to talk to your attorney.
