Why You Should Hire A Workers Compensation Lawyer

by | Nov 12, 2014 | Lawyers

Accidents happen in our workplaces, and someone has to be responsible for the harm caused to the victims. As an employee, you can sue your employer’s insurance company to compensate you for any medical cost, trauma, injuries and lost wages you have suffered due to the accident. Claiming for compensation is not easy as your employer and the insurance company may at times fail to honor their obligations. This is where you should hire a Worker’s Compensation Lawyer and with the following help, you will be sure to get what is rightfully yours.

Your lawyer will let your employer and his insurer that the matter is filed. He will try an out of court negotiation in your behalf to avoid a long and tedious court process. Taking the matter to the court is also costly. If your employer doesn’t give in to you and your lawyer’s demands, you can file a case in the court of law at that juncture.

If after being approached by your lawyer the insurance company does not give in, your attorney will help you file a suit. He will help you with compiling the paperwork, and if there are areas you do not understand, he will as well explain to you in simpler terms.

The attorney will also help prove in the court of law that your injury is work related, and you deserve the compensation you demand. He will also help you be in a better position to understand which type of compensation benefits you are entitled to. There are medical benefits, permanent and partial disability benefits and death benefits. This will help you in having a clear picture of what to expect.

With the help from your attorney, it will be easier to prove whatever you claim because he has dealt with many cases of this nature before. He will gather all evidence needed like the medical reports and witnesses who might have seen that you got injured while performing work related duties.

If your loved one dies at work, your comp attorney will be there to help you claim in full the death benefits of your deceased relative. Though it will not take away the pain, it will relieve the worry to those who depended on the deceased.
