When a Lawyer Isn’t Necessary

Thankfully, there are many cases where lawyers may not be necessary to pursue your Workers Compensation claims. If the injury is very clearly work-related and only minor — it will heal fine with treatment and rest, and doesn’t require too long of an extended period off work — it’s unlikely you’re going to have pushback from insurance companies or your employer. You should be able to make your claim and have it processed smoothly.

When Should I Get a Lawyer for Workers Comp

It’s when your injuries are more severe; extensive medical treatment is required, and a substantial amount of time needs to be taken off work, that you may want to get a Workers Compensation Lawyer involved.

Unfortunately, it’s often when the payouts and time off are more, that you can expect pushback from insurance and employers, and it’s worth seeking legal support to ensure you get the compensation (and care) you’re entitled to.

Is a Lawyer Worth the Cost?

It’s true that lawyers tend to come with an expensive price tag. But this is because they offer some pretty serious value. If you are seeking a Workers Compensation claim in a situation where you’re getting pushback from your employer or insurance, it’s fair to assume that you won’t have the expertise in Workers Compensation law to know where you stand against them. You won’t know if you have a right also to push back.

That’s where lawyers earn their fees. When you work with a specialist within the Workers Compensation area of law, you have a much higher chance of getting the results you want and deserve. Where individuals may settle under pressure from their employer, a Workers Compensation lawyer will go to bat to get the best possible outcome for your case. Which typically means that even with their fees taken out of your claim amount, you’re likely to settle with a higher claim. In many cases, they pay for themselves.
