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:
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.
