As an injured employee, you have rights, but do not rely on your employer or their workers’ compensation insurance carrier to protect those rights at all times. Often, employees assume that they can handle their claims on their own, only to find their claim is denied or they do not receive adequate compensation for their losses. While the law is strict about what constitutes a work-related injury, that does not mean filing for workers’ compensation benefits is straightforward. What seems like a simple situation can quickly become complicated, which is why it is always a good idea to contact an attorney that specializes in workers’ compensation claims. Your attorney can guide you through the claims process, discuss any potential pitfalls, and help you get the compensation you deserve.
Every workplace injury is unique. The circumstances of your injury will not be like a fellow employee’s. If you are unsure about your need for an attorney, there are telltale signs it is in your best interest to contact one:
