The principal circumstance that is troubling for people is when their employer is simply denying their workers’ compensation claim altogether. Unfortunately, workers comp insurers and employers reject workers’ compensation claims on a consistent basis. They do so because of their confidence that many workers will simply fail to appeal these decisions – and crazily, this is true! Of course, if you do pursue a claim through a workers’ compensation attorney, you stand a far better chance at getting the compensation you deserve!
Just because your employer or your workers’ compensation insurer offers compensation, it doesn’t mean what they’re providing is adequate. It might be that the settlement they provide doesn’t cover all of the wages lost or the extensive medical bills that you’ll have had to pay. This isn’t good enough.. Getting the optimal settlement is challenging on your own, but with a lawyer fighting your case you stand an infinitely better chance.
If the injury you’ve suffered will stop you from returning to work indefinitely, or it will limit the type of work that you’re able to carry out, it could be that you’re entitled to weekly payments for the foreseeable future – and perhaps for the remainder of your life. As you’d undoubtedly expect, these cases are very expensive for employers and insurers, so they’ll do almost anything to avoid paying up. We can make sure that you get what you’re due.
Filing a workers’ comp claim often riles some feathers at work. Many bosses will fire workers, reduce their hours, limit their pay, or engage in other forms of discrimination. This isn’t okay. A workers’ compensation attorney can protect your legal rights, helping you seek further compensation for the damage suffered from these actions.
