3 Documents Needed to File a Workers' Compensation Claim, Boston, Massachusetts

If you've been injured in a construction accident, you may be facing expensive medical treatments and income losses due to missed days of work. To make matters worse, your employer—or your employer's insurer—could deny your valid claim for workers' compensation insurance. If this happens, you can sometimes prevail in court, but you'll need to collect the right evidence for your case. Below are some of the items that could help you win.

What You Need to File a Successful Workers’ Compensation Claim

1. Medical Bills

To prevail in any lawsuit, you must show that you have sustained a loss. In the case of a work-related injury or illness, this is normally reflected in the cost of your medical bills. Collect all the bills you received in relation to the workplace incident, including ambulance, hospital, and doctors invoices. Include any tests or diagnostic procedures for which you were charged. These are proof that you have suffered a financial loss.

2. Employment Records

Workers compensationYou also need to get copies of your pay stubs. These are proof that you worked for the employer at the time of the accident, and you can use them to demonstrate additional loss if your injury caused you to miss work and sustain a loss of income. 

3. Witness Reports

Along with employment and medical records, you must prove that the injury or illness occurred during your employment duties to prevail in a workers' compensation case. To do that, you'll likely need testimony or written statements from incident witnesses. Consult with your attorney as to the best way to collect and present this evidence. They may want a visual or audio recording in addition to a written statement to strengthen your case.
