Do I Need A Workers' Compensation Lawyer?
If you have a workplace injury, you need a skilled and experienced attorney advocating on your behalf to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits entitled to you under the law. Your employer and their insurance company will aggressively attempt to limit your recovery as much as possible, or even try to deny your claim entirely.
What Qualifies As A Workplace Injury?
Workplace injuries include specific traumatic events such as falls on a construction site, as well as injuries that occur over time due to repetitive physical stress, such as carpal tunnel syndrome or leg and back injuries. Illnesses and diseases caused by your work are also covered, including:
- Heart disease
- Lung cancer
- Chronic pain syndrome
- Breathing problems
- Exposure to toxic chemicals or fumes
Filing a workers' compensation claim is not the same as suing your employer. Workers' compensation is an insurance benefit that your employer has already paid for. When you file a successful claim, the insurance pays your benefit, not your employer.
What If My Claim Was Denied?
Many workers' compensation claims are initially denied. Insurance companies often claim that you have not been injured, or that the injury you suffered is not serious enough to qualify for workers' compensation benefits. Consequently, you can lose critical benefits, including medical care, disability payments and financial assistance.
If your initial claim has been denied, this doesn't mean you should give up. Rather, it means you should work with a qualified attorney who can help you through the appeals process, ensuring you have the best possible chance at securing the benefits you need for recovery.If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, contact us immediately to schedule a free initial consultation.
