3 Most Important Things in a Workers' Compensation Case

  1. Get a quality treating doctor

  2. Get a fair medical consultant (QME) who will say if you need medical treatment, and calculate a disability rating, which will determine the amount of your settlement

  3. Get a local attorney familiar with the doctors and judges in your area

    What to do if you are Injured

First, tell your employer. Fill out their forms to document the injury.

Second, get immediate medical treatment. Your employer may send you to a pre-assigned doctor.

Third, talk to an attorney for basic advice and strategy, even if you don't hire the attorney.  Learn how to pick your own doctor, and how to maximize a monetary settlement.
