Your employer is required to provide a safe work environment and when you sustain injuries on the job, in most cases you have the legal right to compensation. Employers in every state are required to have Workers Compensation insurance in place and both workplace injury and occupational diseases are covered. (An occupational disease is a medical condition or illness that results from employment in a particular type of work.) Many injured employees do not receive the compensation or full benefits to which they are entitled, due to the fact they settle for Workers compensation without looking into all legal options. A skilled Workers Compensation lawyer can assist you in determining whether or not you qualify for additional payments or if you can pursue financial compensation in the court system.
Your Workers Compensation Lawyer will launch an in-depth investigation into the circumstances surrounding your accident. They will work with experts to identify third parties that can be named in a lawsuit, such as property owners, government entities, subcontractors, etc. Without experience it is difficult to identify all parties to a claim if your accident is not straightforward. It is wise to rely on the skill and experience of a workers compensation attorney to maximize your benefits. Call today for a free case review and for advice on your claim.
Not every lawyer has the experience necessary to successfully pursue compensation for injuries sustained at work. The last thing you want is for a law firm to suffer their learning curve on your case. It is important to seek out a legal team that focuses in this area of law and has a full understanding of what needs to be done to strengthen your claim. Work injury law varies widely per state and make sure that the firm you choose can cite specific cases they have handled in this arena and provide references. Ask them if they have represented injured workers in claims similar to yours and for the outcome of the cases. Also inquire about their education background and about membership in professional legal organizations.
We suggest you prepare an in-depth list of questions for your Workers Compensation lawyer so you will leave your initial appointment with all of your questions answered. Questions can include what takes place in the event you were responsible for the accident, what options exist if a claim was denied or underfunded, what occurs if reckless behavior on the part of the employer contributed to injuries, what legal steps are necessary if a third party caused the accident, can I include pain and suffering in my claim, what types of damages are covered, etc.
