Postal Employee Recovering After Collision

Veteran postal employee and mail carrier Mickey Wheeley is recovery following a collision he experienced while performing his mail carrier duties on his North Carolina route. His injuries occurred when a woman in a Mazda Tribute slammed into his vehicle from behind. The driver of the Mazda was briefly seen for non-life-threatening injuries. Wheeley, though not in immediate danger of losing his life, suffered more severe injuries.

Despite the accident, Wheeley maintains his love for the United States Postal Service and says he looks forward to returning to his route after his injury care is completed.

"I always dreamed of being with the post office... I've only got six or eight more months... I'm hoping to get back as soon as possible."

Employee Statements

It is not an overstatement to say that the single most important factor in winning a DOL-OWCP injury claim is a well written Employee Statement. Regardless of how reputable your provider is, or how solid you believe your case to be, your Employee Statement can make or break your case.

A few tips...

  • Write with the OWCP representative in mind. You are not writing your Employee Statement to impress your doctor or your employing agency, you are writing to properly describe your injury and its relationship to the job duties and circumstances surrounding it.
  • Leave no ambiguiites. Be very detailed with your report and be sure to make clear the circumstances that led to your injury.
  • Utilize the help of an experienced claims representative. An experienced claims manager can help you with proper wording that accurately describes your case.
