You may be hesitant to contact a lawyer after a work injury, but the fact is that it may be helpful as well as informational. This post will look at the benefits of talking to a lawyer in the event of a workplace injury.
You have nothing to lose
Attorneys often have free consultations, which is beneficial to clients who may not know if they should be hiring a lawyer for a workers’ compensation lawsuit. By consulting with a lawyer about your situation, you may have a clearer idea of what to do next.
A lawyer can help you maximize benefits and inform you of your rights.
The compensation that you could receive from your lawyer after completing a workers’ compensation claim may not cover everything you would like it to. Attorneys are trained to be able to get the most out of any situation for you, their client.
You may not know all of your rights as an injured worker and discussing them with a lawyer can be beneficial.
Employers do not have the best interests of a client in mind
Unfortunately, employers are not always rooting for you. Some employers will attempt to get out of compensating you or try to find the way to compensate you as little as possible without breaking the law. An attorney can help you get the most out of your claim.
Attorneys only get paid if an they win compensation for your case
There is little risk in hiring an attorney for your workers’ compensation claim or lawsuit as you do not pay them unless you win your case.
