How a Workers' Comp Attorney Can Help You
There are many instances in which hiring a workers' comp attorney can help you, especially if your circumstances are not straightforward:
If you have already filed a claim and it has been denied for any reason: A lawyer can help appeal the denial and present your case at a hearing.
If you have a pre-existing condition involving the same body part that was injured at work: This will likely be an uphill battle that requires an experienced attorney.
In case you’re having trouble getting the treatment you need: Insurance companies often deny or delay in approving expensive medical treatments. A lawyer can put pressure on the insurance company to approve the necessary medical treatments in a timely manner.
Suppose your ability to work has been affected: A lawyer can help you maximize your workers’ comp benefits and help you secure training if you need to change careers.
Suppose your employer attempts to stop or modify your workers’ compensation benefits: An attorney can help protect your rights to workers’ compensation if you are still affected by your injuries.
You’re receiving other government benefits: If you’re receiving other benefits, these may be reduced if you receive workers’ compensation benefits. A lawyer can help you receive the maximum amount of benefits with minimal to no offsets.
When you have a workers’ comp hearing: If the insurance company refuses to settle or makes low settlement offers, you will need to prove your case at a hearing. A lawyer will be able to represent your best interests.
Injuries Covered by Workers' Compensation
The types of injuries covered by workers' compensation can be connected in some way to an employment requirement or condition.
Some examples might include:
Carpal tunnel syndrome caused by too many consecutive hours at the computer or engaging in repetitive tasks
Back pain from frequent bending or lifting
Chronic respiratory conditions from working in a building with inadequate airflow and chemicals
Shoulder-related injuries from carrying heavy objects
In order to receive workers' compensation, you must have been employed at the time of your injury, and the injury must have been a result of the employment.
