Do I Need a Lawyer After I’ve Been Injured At Work?
Workers’ compensation provides financial support to employees who are injured or become ill on the job. You may obtain compensation regardless of whether you are at fault for a workplace accident. However, workers’ compensation does not cover pain and suffering or other damages requiring a personal injury lawsuit.
Workers’ compensation attorneys are experts in pursuing the full range of benefits a worker can receive. They can answer any questions you may have, determine whether you have a claim, and ensure that your rights are protected throughout the process.
Workers’ compensation attorneys understand the latest regulations, so they can help you navigate the legal complexities of your claim. You will need qualified representation by your side in order to get the compensation you deserve. Contacting a workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible will ensure that your claim is filed promptly.
If your accident also involved a third party, you may be able to seek compensation from the negligent party by filing a personal injury lawsuit in addition to the workers’ compensation claim.
Many people worry about the impact the claim will have on their relationship with their employer. It should have no impact. Employers cannot legally fire you, demote you, or take an other negative action against you for filing a workers’ compensation claim.
If you are an independent contractor, you may not be eligible for the same workers’ compensation benefits as an employee. In such cases, it may be possible to file a personal injury lawsuit for a work-related accident.
Most state and local government workers are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits just like non-governmental employees, though there are exceptions. Federal employees must submit claims through the Federal Employee’s Compensation Act.
A workers’ compensation attorney will work with you to navigate all these complexities and get the best possible settlement for you.
