When you or a family member has been injured while working, finding a workers compensation lawyer might be a wise choice. If this is the case for you, a workers’ compensation lawyer wants to hear from you. Since our inception, we have been aggressively pursuing insurance companies, employers, and negligent parties who have denied accidents victims their benefits, or made attempts to coerce them into agreeing to amounts of damages much lower than what they deserve. Regardless of what your own situation might be, we will listen to what you have to say and let you know what your options might be.
Should I Always Talk with a Lawyer First?
In general, if your injury was mild, straightforward, and required a short recovery time, you will be better suited to filing a workers’ compensation claim on your own. It is better, however, to seek advice from a workers compensation lawyer if your injury was:
- Moderate to severe, or life threatening;
- Resulted in a death; or
- Is being disputed by your employer or insurance company.
