Why Hire A Lawyer For Your Workers’ Compensation Claim?
When you have been injured in an on-the-job accident, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits, regardless of whether you, your employer or a fellow co-worker was to blame. These laws are straightforward, intended to get injured workers the benefits they need in a timely manner. There can be plenty of glitches, however, on the path to a successful application for workers’ compensation.
Why Hire A Lawyer For Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
It is important that you speak with a skilled workers’ compensation lawyer to ensure that you are granted all of the benefits to which you are entitled. Without legal guidance, one of many circumstances may arise. This can include:
- Without proper documentation, certain treatments, procedures and surgeries might not be covered when they should have been.
- You will not be awarded sufficient benefits because the severity of your injury was not properly conveyed through the application.
- The insurance company may downplay your condition, even if it was properly documented, to avoid paying all that you are entitled to.
- A claim might be denied because of a pre-existing condition.
- The insurance company may deny your claim for permanent disability, whether total or partial, even though you and your doctor both believe that your health will not allow you to continue working.
- Your employer may dispute any of the decisions made by the state’s workers’ compensation division.
- Without an attorney, you may not understand additional claims outside of workers’ compensation that might be available to you, including third-party liability.
