Why You Should Consult An Attorney Before Applying For Workers’ Compensation Benefits

On Behalf of | Aug 23, 2013 | Workers' Compensation |

Establishing and filing your Workers’ Compensation claim can be a daunting task, especially if you are inexperienced in such matters. In fact, many claims get denied because they are not built properly, a task an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney can help you with. Consulting with an attorney prior to submitting your claim has several benefits, including:

Legal Expertise

An attorney with ample experience in handling Workers’ Compensation claims understands how the system works and what the claim adjuster is looking for. Having witnessed various scenarios, he or she is able to establish your claim properly, regardless of how complex your individual situation may be. While hiring an attorney does not guarantee that your claim will be approved, it can increase your chances.

Maximizing Your Compensation

A qualified attorney will deal with your employer’s Workers’ Compensation insurance provider so that you receive the deal you deserve. Additionally, he or she will help ensure that you receive compensation from any additional sources that may have been responsible for your accident.

Understanding Your Rights

For individuals that are inexperienced in the legal field, understanding the law can be a difficult task. Besides representing your best interests, an attorney will educate you about your rights as a victim, the process of acquiring the benefits you deserve, and how to maintain them. This will help you better understand your position and what you must do for the best outcome.
