How can an attorney help a workers’ compensation claim?

On Behalf of | Aug 14, 2020 | Workers' Compensation

The workers’ compensation process following a workplace injury can be confusing. If an employee is not careful, they may not receive the total compensation they deserve or anything for their injuries. Insurance companies often tell victims that lawyers only make things worse, but is that true?

As an employee, the chances are that you may not be fluent in even the basics of workers’ compensation. Relying solely on your employer and their insurer for assistance is a risk you may not be willing to make. If you are considering an attorney, you should know what they can do for you first.

Experienced legal guidance

One of the primary benefits that an attorney offers is a victim of workplace injury is that a lawyer is dedicated solely to the best possible outcome for the victim. Lawyers have years of experience navigating through any requirement of a workers’ compensation claim, such as:

  • Assembling any necessary medical evidence or records
  • Conducting any legal research
  • Litigating on behalf of a victim in front of a judge
  • Keeping current in all facets of employment law
  • Taking depositions from any relevant experts, like physicians or the claimant
  • Drafting a wide variety of essential legal documents
  • Following the procedure in a timely and efficient manner

If a victim misses a workers’ compensation deadline, their entire benefit can be at risk. Attorneys can coordinate all of the responsibilities that come with workers’ compensation for their clients’ benefit.

Pursuing compensation alone is risky
