26 Jun What a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Does
You already know your employer has you covered under a workers’ compensation policy, and may have already done some research on how the application works—what do you need a workers’ compensation lawyer for? It’s a common question at Bloom Law Office. Many people are surprised to find out just how often insurance companies deny these claims, leaving hurt employees to navigate a complicated appeals system. That’s the last thing you want to do when you’re injured.
How A Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Can Help
A workers’ compensation attorney optimizes your chances of receiving your benefits. They will handle all of the paperwork, liaise between you and the insurance companies, and they only get paid when you do. You can focus on healing while your workers’ compensation attorney handles gathering medical evidence, negotiating settlements, and representing you at the workers’ compensation hearing.
Attorneys hired by the insurance companies and the claims adjusters aren’t prioritizing your health and financial well-being. Their job is to look for any avenue to deny your claim, even if it’s valid. A workers’ compensation attorney curates evidence, both medical and vocational, because lack of evidence is the most popular cause for a workers’ compensation claim denial. Even approved claims don’t always ensure you receive all of the paid medical treatment necessary. Solid medical evidence is the best thing you can have to support your case, and that’s exactly what a workers’ compensation attorney specializes in.
Your attorney can also arrange physician treatment, represent you at depositions, and take care of the depositions for medical experts. Cases can be strengthened with testimony from vocational experts, statements from those who know your daily activities, and evidence that your employer has a history of subpar training and/or workplace safety.
