Why You Should Hire a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

February 25, 2018 Uncategorized

If you have experienced a workplace accident that resulted in an injury, you are probably wondering where you should turn for help and support. Your injuries could result in expensive medical fees and prevent you from reporting to work while you recover.

Unless you get a fair settlement or win your fight in court, you could get stuck paying for your losses out of your own pocket, which is a situation you will want to avoid. If you would like to optimize your odds of getting a favorable outcome so that you won’t need to struggle to pay your expenses, enlisting a workers’ compensation lawyer is the only smart move.

Your Company Won’t Always Have Your Interests in Mind

You likely trust your employer to do the right thing if you have never dealt with a workers’ compensation case, which is understandable. Even though the legal system designed workers’ compensation to give injured workers a fair payout, your employer will have its own interests in mind, not yours. Your company won’t want you to get the compensation you deserve because it will affect the company’s bottom line.

Building Your Case

Keeping your needs in mind at all times, your workers’ compensation lawyer will review the details of your case and collect the evidence in your favor. A skilled and compassionate legal expert will look at your medical bills, witness statements and other things relevant to your case. This process will let your lawyer prepare and organize the facts in a way that will boost your chance of winning your legal battle and achieving your objectives.

Defending Your Rights

In a perfect world, companies would respect an employee’s right to seek compensation after an accident takes place, but that is not what usually happens. To discourage other employees from filing claims, some managers will harass, demote or fire employees who stand up for their rights.

Although such actions are illegal, companies are often careful to cover their tracks and avoid detection. You won’t need to worry about that situation when you have a lawyer in your corner because she will know the things for which to look. When you have a lawyer on your team, your company will be much more careful with how it handles your case.

Negotiating a Settlement

Workers’ compensation lawsuits are long processes that can quickly become complicated, and juries are not predictable. To help you avoid a long battle and to get you your compensation as quickly as possible, your lawyer will speak to your company to reach a fair settlement that makes sense for you. Throughout each step, you will know what is happening and get advice on how to proceed in a way that will give you the best odds of success.

Fighting in Court

A quality lawyer will offer advice on whether you should accept the settlement, but the choice will always be in your hands. If you feel as though the settlement is fair and that it will cover your expenses, your lawyer will accept the deal. Your lawyer, however, will take your fight to court and present your case to a judge or jury if you are not thrilled with the settlement terms.

Final Thoughts

While the costs of a workplace injury can add up faster than you might think, workers’ compensation can help if you follow the right steps. You will need a talented and caring lawyer on your side so that you can get a fair payout that will ease the pain of your situation. Confidence and peace of mind are what you can expect when you have a proven workers’ compensation lawyer, and you will know you have made the right call.
