First, report your injury to your employer. Second, get good medical attention right away. Third, try to document what caused your injury. And fourth, if you were injured by the fault of another person who is not a co-employee or your employer, then you may have what is called a "Third Party Claim" against the "at fault" person or business who caused these injuries. Then, call my office to find out if you should make two separate claims for your injuries. What I mean by this is that one claim is under Workers Compensation, and the other is against the at fault third party. Each of these separate claims have different processes and different recoveries that you may be entitled to. For example, under your workers compensation claim, they pay your medical bills but only two thirds of your salary. But if a third party claim can be made, then you are entitled to recovery for All of your lost wages and future loss of earning capacity in addition to many other types of compensation. Many clients who were in a car accident while working. Some people mistakenly think that workers compensation is their only avenue of a recovery for their lost wages and medical bills. However, the at fault person may be responsible to you for the harm they caused by their negligence. When people are injured on the job and the injury was caused by another company or another worker on a construction site, they may have a "Third Party Claim" to be made against the at fault person or business. Additionally, if you have been injured by a defective product, such as a crane, truck, or some other product that injured you while you were on the job, then you might be able to make a recovery against the product manufacturer in addition to your workers compensation benefits. If you can bring a third party claim your recovery is going to be significantly greater than just the benefits available through your workers compensation insurance company. For example, if you are out of work, workers compensation only pays you two thirds of your wages and there is a cap on how much they will pay. However, in a third party claim, you are entitled to recover 100% of your lost wages in the past and future, without any cap. In a workers compensation claim, you don't get your fringe benefits. However, in a third party claim, you are entitled to 100% of your fringe benefits. In a workers compensation claim, you are not entitled to any money for pain, suffering, mental anguish or loss of enjoyment of life. But in a claim brought against the at fault party, you are able to recover each of these valuable losses. In a workers compensation claim, you don't get to pick your doctors, the workers compensation insurance company dictates who you can see. However, in a third party claim, you can go to any doctor you choose. In a workers compensation claim, the theory is to pay for medical treatments and some of your lost wages, but to get you back to work as fast as possible. However, in a third party claim, the laws are designed to make you "whole again". In other words, to fix what can be fixed, to help what can be helped, and then to make up for what can't be fixed or helped. When we represent clients who have both a workers compensation claim and a third party claim, we encourage them to seek their workers compensation benefits, and allow us to go after the at fault party. So there are actually two cases going forward at the same time. The bottom line is this, in any injury case, it is important to consider all of your options and to select the best ones that are right for you. http://www.MattLaw.com

(Part 1 of 2) Transcript: Hi there, my name's Anthony Pownall, I'm an associate solicitor at Bonallack and Bishop. I work in the personal injury department and I'm here to do a short presentation on accidents at works claims. "Guide to making a work accident claim" First step is to try and ascertain what's actually happened, there'll have been an accident at work and we need to sit down with the client, have good chat about whats happened, get as much detail and information as possible and obviously reassure the client because people in this kind of situation are often worried that they may lose their job or have difficulty with their employer but legislation can protect them from those sorts of difficulties. "Am I protected from unfair dismissal?" The law protects employees in certain circumstances from unfair dismissal and obviously if your employers starts to get difficult, there is the option of reminding your employer of that legislation and in addition in most cases the employer has insurance and is the insurance company that deals with it rather than the actual employer. "What happens at the beginning of a claim?" At the beginning of a claim you sit down with your solicitor and he will go through the accidents circumstances o take as much detail as possible about what has happened. That is very important because the solicitor needs from the outset to work out regulations that apply, various health and safety regulations, like manual handling regulations for example and the old common law negligence which is a duty of your employer to protect you from foreseeable risks of harm or injury. "What happens next?" After details of the accident have been taken a letter is then written to the employer. That letter sets out in summary form the circumstances of the accident, brief details of the injury sustained and then the employer has 21 days to acknowledge the receipt and then three months on top of that to investigate and come back with their views of whether they're responsible for the accident or not. "Should I speak to a lawyer first?" The best way of dealing with it is to come to the solicitor first rather than discuss it. There will be discussions with the employer because any sensible or reasonable employer, when there's an accident will look into and report on the accident circumstances internally any way so you'd expect to see some discussions between the employee and the employer before the injured person comes to talk to the solicitor. "What evidence do I need?" Evidence in support of a claim normally takes the form of witnesses, solicitors should be provided with names and address so that he can go and talk to them. Evidence in respect of losses, so if medication, painkillers for example, you need to keep receipts. Notes of time off work of the people who look after you while you're not at work things like that are required as evidence to support the claim.

http://www.disabilitydenials.com/blog/how-can-medical-evidence-for-va-compensation-claims-be-obtained/ In this video Marc Whitehead, a Board Certified Veterans Disability Attorney, explains what medical evidence is need for a Veterans Disability and how it is commonly obtained. The process of obtaining medical records is an important process to learn in order to be able to satisfy the Nexus requirement before starting on the Veteran compensation claim. The format for creating a nexus is fairly straight forward. A veteran usually only needs a letter or statement for a physician whether its their private physician or if they are employed by the VA. Occasionally the linkage evidence will be provided through Military medical records or a physicians in person testimony. However, the content included in the Physicians statement is absolutely crucial in a successful VA Compensation claim. The medical opinion linking the Veterans disability to a service incident must be based on examination and analysis not just the Veterans testimony. The Statement must also include the physicians reasoning behind coming the this conclusion. Another important factor is the wording in the statements. The more clear and specific the wording the better chance the Veterans has for a successful claim. Fuzzy or unclear wording has been frequent reasons for denials in the past. The VA can and frequently does rule medical experts opinions inadequate, if analysis and reasoning's are not explicitly present. Choosing the right medical expert is key to a successful VA claim. While the expert is not required to be a Doctor, they must have some sort of medical training in the field relevant to the Veterans impairment. Possible experts include: Nurses Physiologists Social Workers The better trained and respected your medical expert is, the more likely the VA is to rule in your favor. Other evidence, besides medical opinion, can also be submitted to support compensation claims. Examples of this usually include studies and articles from Medical Journals. While these will not be sufficient to prove a nexus of evidence, they may support the claim and sway the VA when the medical opinions provided are not definitive enough. If a Veteran doesn't include a medical opinion in their claim, the VA will provide for an examination so that an opinion can be obtained. The VA will only do this is the veteran provides sufficient evidence of their disability and of an incident during service that could have lead to the disability. The VA will throw out the case if there is no reasonable way that an exam would lead to a favorable ruling. The VA can also rule that a veterans providing medical opinions submit to an additional exam completed by a VA Physician. This usually happens when the VA is seeking to disprove a case. For you're chance at a favorable decision, keep calm and work with your disability lawyer to insure that you have submitted as much evidence as possible to strengthen your case. It is possible to reapply for Veterans Disability if your case is denied. Veterans doing this should be aware that new evidence will be required before the VA will revisit your case. The new evidence necessary will be explained in the reason you were denied your VA benefits in the first place. Winning your VA compensation claim can be difficult, but with the help of a qualified disability attorney you will be within reach of the benefits you deserve.
