Why Should You Hire A Workers’ Comp Attorney?
You may wonder why, after you have been injured at work and filed a workers’ compensation claim, you need an attorney? After all, you filled out your employers’ forms and saw their doctor. Won’t they take care of everything? Sadly, the answer is sometimes no, and working with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney from The Law Offices of Dix & Forman, P.C., is how you can protect your rights to your full workers’ compensation benefits.
Here’s the problem. Insurers want to keep costs down. They do this by denying claims or by minimizing the total payout. The claims’ filing process can be complex, and you may be hurt, on pain medication or unfamiliar with the process. You hope everyone is working to help you get better, but they may have their own agenda.
They Are All Claims Professionals. Are You?
Another difficulty many injured workers have when they try to file a workers’ compensation claim on their own, is they are surrounded by professionals who handle these claims every day. They work with this material every day. The doctor who works for the employer, the claims adjusters and lawyers are also likely incented to find ways to deny or minimize your claim. You may need a second opinion from a different doctor, and you may need help understanding what a denial letter from the insurance company means.
