Signs You Need a Work Injury Attorney

If you were recently injured at work, you may wonder if you should hire a Nassau County work injury attorney or not. If your case is fairly straightforward and your employer agrees that the injury occurred at work, you may be able to handle the case on your own. On the other hand, if there are complexities in your case, it may be necessary to work with an attorney.

Here are a few signs that you need a work injury attorney.

Your Employer Has Rejected Your Claim

Not all workers’ compensation claims get approved initially. If your employer has rejected your claim, it can be very disheartening. However, that doesn’t mean you have to give up. You can file an appeal with the help of a work injury attorney. Your attorney can determine why your claim was denied in the first place and improve your chances of getting your claim approved the second time around.

The Settlement Doesn’t Cover All Your Medical Bills and Lost Wages

A workers compensation settlement should cover all of the medical bills and lost wages that resulted from your work injury. Some insurance companies, however, will do whatever it takes to lower how much they owe you for your claim. If your settlement offer won’t pay for all of your losses, it may be time to get a work injury lawyer involved.

You Have a Third-Party Claim

If a third-party is responsible for your work injury, you may be able to file a civil lawsuit and obtain additional compensation. For instance, if you drive a vehicle for work and another motorist hits your vehicle, you can sue the person for your damages. A work injury attorney can help you file a timely lawsuit against the third-party.

You Suffered a Disability

If your work injury is severe enough to render you permanently disabled, you may never be able to work. In this situation, you may be eligible to receive higher payments. However, these payments are more expensive for insurance companies, so they may try to fight your claim. It’s necessary to have an experienced work injury lawyer on your side.

Your Employer Retaliated Against You

While it’s completely within your right to file a workers’ compensation claim for a work-related injury, some employers may retaliate. If your employer has demoted you, cut your pay or fired you after you filed a claim, contact a work injury lawyer.

Common Mistakes to Avoid When Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim
