Having an attorney from the very start of a workplace injury claim provides a multitude of benefits to the injured worker. This includes:
What If I Have A Serious Injury?
Injured workers suffering from serious, debilitating workplace injuries should absolutely hire a workers’ compensation attorney. Some claimants may believe because they have a severe injury the insurance company will understand the seriousness of the situation but that notion is not necessarily true.
Insurance companies may still attempt to downplay the seriousness of an injury and their “independent” medical examiner may not give full credence to the breadth of a victim’s injuries.
Why Do I Need A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
Employees filing workers’ compensation claims should always consider hiring or at the very least speaking to an attorney about their case. However, there are some situations where retaining legal counsel can be important.
Scenarios where claimants should consult a workers’ compensation lawyers include:
Experienced workers’ compensation attorneys should be familiar with much more than just filing claims, in fact they should absolutely be prepared to take the claim all the way through the mediation and hearing process to get their clients the benefits they deserve. Insurance companies have years of experience denying claims and benefits so victims should have an attorney on their side working equally hard for them.
