What does a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?

During a workers’ compensation case, the employer and its insurance company are supposed to act in good faith to volunteer benefits that are owed to you including your medical care, pay for time off work, mileage, and benefits for any permanent injury you have. They are supposed to do this in a timely manner. However, this does not often happen because the employer and carrier are always looking for ways to get out from paying you any benefits, or if they can’t avoid it, to minimize them as much as possible.

A workers’ compensation lawyer helps find and calculate the benefits that are owed to you, insist that they are paid, and if not, goes to trial to win the benefits. To say that the workers’ compensation system is complex is an understatement. Many of the insurance adjusters, company nurses, and defense lawyers have spent their careers navigating the system and most ordinary people are no match for them. However, an experienced Claimant’s lawyer can go toe-to-toe with any insurance adjuster, occupational health nurse, or defense lawyer and odds are good the lawyer can get you more money than you would get on your own. That’s just what we do.

A lawyer cannot take attorney fees from money already promised to you, so there is no harm to you in getting a free consultation about what other rights and benefits you may have.
