Preparing for Your First Consultation
We offer free consultations to injured victims and their families so they can get answers to their questions about filing a workers’ comp claim in Florida. To make the most of your free consultation, you should take the following steps before coming into the office.
Bring copies of all medical records, statements, and forms you have received recording your claim. It is very important to bring copies of any workers’ comp forms you have been given by your employer or its insurance carrier. Also, bring any doctor’s statements or notes you were given while being treated for your injury.
Write A Detailed Accounting of The Accident
It may be difficult to remember things when you are sitting in our office. Therefore, write down a detailed description of the accident before you come to meet with us. Do this several days before your appointment. Review the description several times to add any information you may have left out of the original draft. Make sure you are thorough and honest. We can’t help you with your claim if you are not honest and forthcoming with your information.
Also, include other information the attorney will need such as the date you were hired, your job title, a copy of your job duties. Include the date you were injured, when you first sought medical treatment, what the doctors have told you about your injury, and who you notified at your employer’s office.
