You may be thinking, “Why do I need to hire an attorney for my Workers’ Compensation claim when I can handle it on my own?”
Let’s keep it simple with two main points:
- It is not simple as it seems. While workers’ compensation claims do not appear to be complex, there are many factors that may change the circumstances of the claim. These include but are not limited to: unique issues, problematic employers and insurance companies. Every workers’ compensation claim is unique, and a careful review of your claim by one of our attorneys may reveal that you are entitled 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 being handled properly. Settlement agreements must be structured properly. Lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help you with this. When you hire an attorney, you have someone who can answer all of your questions and explain everything to you. You can also be confident that the advice you are given will hold up in a court of law.
- It is in your best interest to have an attorney representing your interests. Workers’ Compensation laws used to be designed to work in the favor of the employee. Over the years, many changes have been made in the law to even the playing field. Regardless, the reality is that companies do not want to incur expenses and liabilities. This is precisely the reason why companies hire insurance companies that have well-trained lawyers that could counter your claims. These insurance companies may offer you something that you think is favorable to you, but you must always remember who they work for. Of course, the interests of their client are a priority over yours. Insurance adjusters with your employer’s insurance company always try to make sure that the payouts are low. They will never advise you of how you can obtain additional benefits.Hiring a lawyer is important to make sure that your rights as an employee are not compromised. Did you know that a high percentage of employees who are injured at work have their claims denied, and they do not appeal. This is not a 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 one of our lawyers, you can be assured that your claim will be filed properly, you meet deadlines, 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. Delays will cost you more. Our goal is to get you properly compensated as quickly as possible.
