Pasadena Work Injury Attorneys Gathering the Evidence You Need

A non-subscriber work injury claim is similar to other personal injury claims—and like them, a claim against a non-subscriber employer will require you to have evidence to support your case

That evidence may include:

  • The incident report that describes what happened. Many (but not all) companies require the filing of this kind of report any time someone is hurt on the job.
  • Witness statements from anyone who saw what happened.
  • Any available photographs, videos, or damaged items that demonstrate the extent of the accident.
  • Your medical records related to the incident to show the extent and consequences of your injury.
  • Your employment records to demonstrate any lost wages and/or benefits as a result of your injury.
  • Expert witness testimony from someone who, for example, specializes in the analysis of workplace accidents.

All of these kinds of evidence will be helpful in your case. You will also have another thing going for you: your employer has limited options for what they can argue in an effort to discredit you or to avoid taking responsibility.

Your Employer Cannot Blame You

Of course, your employer will be looking carefully at all of the information that can be gathered about the accident. Nevertheless, you—the injured employee—are in a strong position following a workplace accident. That’s because the law prohibits non-subscriber employers from arguing that you contributed to or caused your own injuries—unless you were under the influence of drugs or alcohol or intentionally hurt yourself. So your employer will not be able to suggest that they have no responsibility for your injuries.

Damages Available in Workplace Injury Claims

Following an injury at work, you may be entitled to compensation in any or all of the following areas:

  • Medical expenses. This includes any medical attention, surgery, therapy, rehabilitation, or prescriptions you may require after you have been hurt at work. This is not limited to your immediate expenses. Instead, you may be awarded damages to cover future medical expenses like long-term care or a sequence of surgeries.
  • Lost wages. Damages for medical expenses are all about the money you had to pay out as a result of being hurt at work. On the flip side, damages for lost wages are all about the money that isn’t coming in due to your injuries. This may include past and future wages—and can include compensation to replace lost income resulting from your inability to return to work at all. 
  • Pain and suffering. Being injured can be an extremely traumatic event in a person’s life. Damages for pain and suffering are calculated based on the extent of your injury and the effect it has had on your overall well-being.
