If you are worried about your workers’ compensation claim being denied, you might have decided to hire a team of Pueblo workers’ comp lawyers to assist you with your case. Although you can count on your team of lawyers to assist you, however, it is important to do what you can to help your case as well. These are a few ways that you can help prove your injury.
Avoid Refusing Care
First of all, make sure that you do not refuse any type of care. If your doctor schedules follow-up appointments, make sure that you go to them. If you are advised to see a specialist, do so. Not only will this help your case, but it will also help you ensure that you are getting the treatment that you need.
Keep All of Your Documentation
Make sure that you hold on to any doctor’s notes, doctor’s bills or other documentation that you are given. All of these documents can be used to help prove the extent of your injuries. Plus, keeping your medical bills will help you ensure that they are paid in full.
Keep an Injury Journal
It is not a bad idea to keep an injury journal while you are going through the healing process. Use your injury journal to document how you’re feeling each day, what kind of treatment you are getting and anything else related to your injury. This is a good way to keep everything organized, and your notes will help you if you are asked questions later.
