Why Hire an Attorney for a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, more than 2 million people suffer work-related injuries or illnesses every year. Some may receive a fair settlement from their employers, while others are too confused by the workers’ compensation system to receive the money they deserve for their losses.
What Happens After a Worker is Hurt on the Job?
Injured workers may ask the question, “Why should I hire an attorney?” The answer is simple: the insurance claims administrators that decide how much you will receive do not work for you. They work for the insurance company.
After a worker is injured, an insurance claims administrator determines whether the initial medical bills should be paid. In addition, a worker might receive payment for lost wages for a short time after being injured. Even if the claims administrators act in good faith, their job is to provide minimum relief for you at a minimum cost to the company. Sometimes the claims administrator’s assessment of your case may conflict with your view of what you need to recover physically and financially.
So, what happens when the medical bills keep arriving, but the insurance payments have stopped?
