Hiring a Lawyer

You may be thinking, “Why would I need to hire a lawyer for my Workers’ Compensation claim when I can go about it on my own?”

Let’s keep it simple with just two main points:

  1. It may not be as simple as it seems. While some work compensation cases are pretty simple, there are many factors that may change the circumstances such as unique issues, a problematic employer and insurance companies. The uniqueness of your case may also result to other damages you are entitled to that you are not aware of.Hiring a lawyer gives you the peace of mind that your claim is handled properly. Settlement agreements must be structured properly. Lawyers have the knowledge and experience on how to help you with this. When you hire an attorney, you have someone to ask if in case there is something that is unclear to you. You are also sure that the advice you are given holds in the courts of law.
  2. It is in your best interest. Work compensation law is designed to work in the favor of the employee. However, it is reality that companies do not want to incur expenses and liabilities. This is precisely why companies hire insurance companies that have well-trained lawyers that could counter your claims. These insurance companies might offer you something you think is favorable to you, but remember who they work for. Of course, the interests of their client would be priority over yours. Adjusters of your employer’s insurance company make sure that the payouts are low. They will not advise you how you can avail of more benefits.

Hiring a lawyer is important to make sure that your rights as an employee are not compromised. Did you know that 80% of employees who are injured at work have their claims denied and they do not appeal. This is not fair settlement for injuries. The lawyers of Workers’ Compensation LLC will make sure that you get the deal that you deserve. An attorney by your side is your best chance for a settlement most favorable to you.

If you are injured, it is best that you rest and recuperate. Filing a claim can be stressful. With a lawyer, you can be assured that your claim will be filed properly, you meet deadlines, and and that your interests are not compromised. While a family member can file your claim for you, an experienced lawyer can make sure that everything goes smoothly. Legal knowledge and experience goes a long way, especially when your adversaries are experienced lawyers of your employer’s insurance company.

While you can always file for an appeal if your claim is denied, it is in your best interest to have it approved the first time without the need for an appeal which is, again, also subject to approval. Delays could cost you more. The goal here is to get compensated rightly as quickly as possible.
