Why is Documenting Important

If you’re hurt at work, you might be covered by the Victorian WorkCover scheme. This insurance protects you if you get injured on the job. To get compensation, you need to show that your job contributed to your injury.

Regardless of whether it’s a workplace injury or other personal injury case, your claim will be looked at by claims managers and lawyers. They’ll check your medical evidence and see if your claim meets certain legal requirements. You might have to go for more medical checks or give more details about your injury, but collecting evidence is how you show and prove the impact of the injury.

Collect as much evidence as possible. Take photos of the accident scene, your injuries, and any damage. Keep all medical bills, police reports, and witness details. Don’t forget receipts for any costs related to the accident may be able to be reimbursed. Having a lawyer can make a big difference in your claim. Our team at Carbone Lawyers knows exactly what documents are important and how to use them effectively.

What Should You Share With the Insurer

When making a claim, you’ll need to give the insurer quite a bit of personal information. They need this to determine whether your claim will be accepted or not. It’s important to be honest with the insurer so that you’re fairly compensated, though it’s equally important that insurers are only provided with necessary, relevant information. As soon as you’re injured, we recommend consulting with one of our lawyers so that you can be properly guided through the insurer claims process.

It’s also important you’re careful with your social media and digital footprint. Insurers can look through your social media profile and potentially use this information in court.
