What a Workers' Compensation Lawyer Should Do for You

If you’re an employee who has been injured in a work-related accident, you may be entitled to take legal action against your employer. Unfortunately, the reality is that even the most legitimate claims are denied in the workers’ compensation system by employers or insurance carriers. Because of this, many injured claimants find themselves facing a complex appeals process, when their claim never should have been denied in the first place. In this blog, we explain what a workers’ compensation lawyer should do for you and your case.

Develop Medical Evidence

One of the most common reasons behind the denial of workers’ compensation claims is a lack of or insufficient medical, vocational, and other types of evidence. A workers’ compensation attorney can help by gathering medical records that outline your injuries and any treatment you’ve undergone since the day of the accident. Furthermore, there are depositions that can be conducted by your attorney which will include the expert testimony from medical professionals who can attest to the extent of your injuries and any permanent disability that may result from your injuries.

Negotiating Settlement Agreements

An experienced lawyer will be able to calculate the value of your claim and how much your case is worth. Moreover, a good workers’ compensation attorney will know how to strategically use negotiating tricks and tactics to ensure that you receive your fair share. It’s important that you remember, however, to discuss the structure of your settlement agreement. For example, your settlement should be set up in a way that takes into account not only the bills you’ve paid, but the medical expenses you’ll expect to have to pay in the future.
