We know what it takes to win, and with the right steps, we can build a strong case on your behalf.
The steps you take following your workplace accident can make or break your claim. Unfortunately, many people are unsure of the steps that help the most, and it can often lead to a claim denial when you need compensation most. Before anything else, make sure you report your accident to your supervisor and employer, including information regarding your accident such as date and time, location, how, and anyone else who was there.
If you’re injured, make sure you get medical attention to start your treatment. You will also need to go through an independent medical exam with the insurance company’s medical professional to determine the severity of your injury. You can get the paperwork to file your claim from your employer. It’s important to ensure your paperwork is filled out accurately with full details from your claim.
The paperwork you file needs to be filed correctly, and having a lawyer on your side can be as helpful as any evidence you gather for your claim. A workers’ compensation attorney can help you understand your rights. An attorney can also explain the benefits of a settlement vs. weekly benefit payments so you can make the choice that best suits your situation.
Another advantage of having a lawyer is you get legal projection from the many tactics insurance adjusters try to use against you to deny your claim. And if the insurance company does deny your claim, an attorney can be there to help you appeal the denial to rightfully pursue the compensation you deserve. When you have an attorney on your side, insurance companies know that you have leveled the playing field, and you can feel peace of mind during the process.
