What Are the Benefits of Hiring a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
Have you suffered a workplace injury? If so, and you find yourself feeling overwhelmed and wondering what steps to take next, you aren’t alone. Accidents can happen unexpectedly - and while they may happen in an instant, they can have long-term effects that drastically alter your life. Some workplace injuries are minor, and the injured employee can return to work quickly, while other injuries may be life-long and permanent. Wherever you find yourself on this spectrum, you may be wondering what your rights are and whether there are benefits to hiring a Worker’s Compensation lawyer.
The answer to that question? Absolutely. There are countless benefits to hiring a workers’ compensation attorney – particularly if you have suffered a significant injury and you feel that your employer may be withholding the compensation and care that you deserve. A talented and experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you:
- DETERMINE ELIGIBILITY AND MEET NECESSARY LEGAL REQUIREMENTS: As with any legal matter, workers’ compensation law can be complex and confusing to those unfamiliar with the process. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help to ensure that you meet all of the legal requirements to file a claim and that you have taken steps to seek the treatment and gather the evidence that you need to move forward.
- FIGHT BACK AGAINST AN INITIAL DENIAL OF YOUR CLAIM: If you have been a reliable employee with a great work record, you may assume that collecting workers’ compensation will be a fairly simple process. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Sometimes, it can be shocking to discover that your initial claim for workers’ compensation benefits has been denied. A workers’ compensation lawyer who knows and understands the law can help you to gather the best evidence you need, and to craft a legal strategy that presents your case in the best possible light to fight back against claim denial and fight for the compensation you deserve.
- NEGOTIATE EFFECTIVELY WITH INSURANCE COMPANIES: Insurance companies are businesses. Like most businesses, they want to reduce costs and make a profit. Unfortunately, this often means that they will offer you less than your claim is worth. Insurance companies have attorneys who work for them – and you should too. Having a workers' compensation lawyer who knows and understands the law and who understands how to negotiate and communicate with insurance companies will help to ensure that you don't forfeit important legal rights, or miss out on the compensation you deserve. A talented workers' compensation attorney will help you seek the maximum amount of compensation for your injury and negotiate the best settlement on your behalf.
- REDUCE STRESS AND ANXIETY: Being injured is a stressful experience in and of itself. You don’t need the added stress of worrying about legal problems and wondering if you’ll be able to pay your bills and provide for your family. A talented and experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can focus on your case, so you can spend time on what’s most important – recovering from your injury and moving forward.
These are only a few of many benefits that a knowledgeable and experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can offer as you pursue your claim. Don’t hesitate to seek the representation you need to recover the compensation you deserve.
