Should I Get a Lawyer if I Got Hurt at Work?
If you get hurt at work, the first thing you need to do is report your injury and seek medical attention. Be thorough with your medical professional, so they can keep detailed documentation. You will be able to access these records at a later date. After you receive that initial treatment contact an attorney who specializes in workers’ compensation. My office can help you begin the process while you recover.
How Do I Maximize My Workers Comp Settlement?
Employees that sustain injuries while on the job deserve to receive fast and fair compensation. Not only to pay the medical bills, but also for lost wages during rehabilitation. Unfortunately, many people find that insurance companies and employers are reluctant to pay a fair settlement or even deny the claim altogether.
There are several steps we recommend to ensure that your claim is handled properly.
After you seek medical attention for your injuries the next step is to file a claim within 30 days. The sooner the better. Filing a claim involves accurately completing all forms, questionnaires, and any other required paperwork. I recommend hiring an attorney at this stage so you can focus on healing instead of worrying about whether or not your paperwork was handled properly.
Seeing a doctor may not be enough. I may need to correspond with your doctor or even meet with them to make sure that all of the right questions are asked. I have thirty-five years of experience speaking with doctors of every specialty about my clients’ medical conditions. This is one of the parts of my job I love the most and I believe that I am pretty good at it.
Workers’ Compensation Claim Denied?
The number one reason people hire me is because their claim has been denied. I will appeal that denial, put the case in a posture to win, and maximize its settlement value.
Can I Sue My Employer for Denying Workers Comp?
Workers’ compensation laws are structured in a way to protect both employer and employee. Typically, when an employee is injured on the job, the employer is protected by their workers’ comp insurance, which frees the employer from personal liability. There are a few exceptions, like when your employer failed to obtain workers’ compensation insurance, or when the employer intentionally caused your injury. You may also have a separate claim against a third party if your injury was caused by someone other than your employer. Hiring an attorney may help facilitate a settlement. And remember there is a course for legal action in the event an employer retaliates against an employee seeking workers compensation.
Questions to Ask Workers’ Comp Lawyer
Where Do I Seek Medical Attention?
During a workers’ compensation claim you will be instructed to have an independent medical exam that is appointed by the insurance company. These doctors can at times be biased towards the insurance companies, which is why we recommend you contact our law office. We will schedule a separate independent medical evaluation to prevent any biases from the medical exam.
What Can a Workers Comp Lawyer Do for Me?
A good workers’ compensation attorney represents you in court or during mediation. Insurance companies and law firms representing employers do not have your best interest in mind. A workers comp lawyer will fight for you and make sure justice is served on your behalf.
Is It Worth Getting a Workers Comp Attorney?
Employees injured on the job are not required to have legal representation when filing a workers’ compensation claim, but it is a guarantee the employer’s insurance company will have a team of lawyers handling the case. These companies want you to settle on a low figure. It’s their job. Hiring an experienced workers’ comp attorney ensures you are treated fairly and you receive a proper settlement.
How Long Do I Have to File A Workers’ Comp Claim?
Typically, employees have 30 days to notify their employer of an injury. It is important to remember this because many companies can deny your claim if you miss this deadline. But that does not mean your case is lost. Contact our law firm so we can thoroughly investigate the incident to get you compensated for your injuries.
