If you have suffered an injury while on the job, you may be wondering when to hire a workers compensation lawyer. Depending on how serious your injury or injuries are, hiring a lawyer to handle the complexity of your case, and the actions of your employer (or their insurance company) could be very beneficial. The following are some good examples of when to hire a workers compensation lawyer.
When to Hire a Workers Compensation Lawyer
The most obvious time to hire a workers compensation lawyer is when your case becomes too complex or overwhelming to you. You should focus on recovering and allow the experienced workers compensation lawyers at Parke Gordon Law Firm handle the stress of your case. Situations that call for a lawyer to intervene include the following.
Employer Denies Your Workers Compensation Claim or Does Not Pay Benefits Promptly
Many employers or their insurance deny workers comp claims confident that the worker will fail to appeal. Unfortunately, they are usually right. However, an experienced workers comp lawyer from Parke Gordon will cost you nothing up front and is your best chance to receive a fair settlement. Our attorneys will fight for every penny you are owed for your injuries.
Offered an Unfair Settlement
If you are offered an unfair settlement that will not cover all your lost wages or medical bills, hire Parke Gordon Law Firm. Never rely on a workers compensation judge to determine if you are being offered a fair settlement. A workers comp settlement must have judicial approval, however, a judge will sometimes sign off on any agreement as long as it is not grossly unfair. If you really want to be sure you are being offered the best settlement possible, call the lawyers of Parke Gordon Law Firm for a free case review.
Suffering from Permanent Disability
If your work related accident left you permanently disabled–whether partial or total– you may be entitled to receive compensation for lost wages. Or if your medical issues have prevented you from returning to work, limit your ability to work, or are keeping you from working at all, you may also be entitled to receive compensation for lost wages. Call an attorney to find out for your particular case.
