Here to help you navigate the complex world of workers' compensation.
Whether you're an employee seeking benefits or an employer addressing a claim, we have the knowledge and experience to guide you through the process.
WHAT IS WORKERS’ COMPENSATION?
Workers' Compensation is a system designed to provide financial protection to employees who are injured or become ill while on the job. It is a no-fault insurance program that ensures workers receive medical care and compensation for lost wages related to their workplace injuries or illnesses. This system is intended to protect both employees and employers by providing a streamlined process for addressing workplace injuries and reducing the need for lengthy legal battles.
In general, an employee with a work-related illness or injury can get workers’ compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault—the employee, the employer, a coworker, a customer, or some other third party.
WHEN SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO HIRE AN ATTORNEY?
While the Workers' Compensation system is designed to be accessible without legal representation, there are situations where hiring an attorney can be highly beneficial:
DENIAL OF BENEFITS
If your Workers' Compensation claim has been denied, it's essential to consult with an attorney. Denials can occur for various reasons, and an experienced attorney can help you appeal the decision and navigate the complex appeals process.
When the insurance company disputes the validity of your claim, it's essential to have a skilled attorney on your side to gather evidence, build a strong case, and protect your rights.
In some cases, a third party, such as a product manufacturer or contractor, may be responsible for your workplace injury. An attorney can help you explore additional legal avenues to maximize your compensation.
If you had a pre-existing medical condition that was aggravated or worsened by your work, an attorney can help determine if you're eligible for Workers' Compensation benefits.
If you believe your employer has retaliated against you for filing a Workers' Compensation claim, an attorney can help you protect your rights and seek remedies for any wrongful actions.
Workers' Compensation cases can become complex, especially when multiple parties or insurance policies are involved. An attorney can navigate these complexities and ensure you receive the compensation you deserve.
