Should I consult a lawyer before I speak with insurance?

| Jan 19, 2017 | Workers' Compensation

If you’ve worked at your factory job very long at all, you know that injuries are likely to happen sooner or later. Even when you take proper precautions, mistakes get made.

If you get injured on the job the very first thing you should do is get medical attention and notify your employer. Even if your injury seems small, it can turn into something big, or it may be more serious than you think it is.

Of course, as soon as an injury on the job happens, your employer should file a report with one’s workers’ compensation insurance provider.

Once you get the medical help you need to keep things from getting worse, though, you owe it to yourself to speak with a lawyer who knows who to deal with insurance companies. The truth of the matter is that insurance companies are far more concerned with paying out as little as they can.

You deserve to get the best care possible during your recovery, and the maximum benefits if your injury requires financial compensation. No insurance company is going to hunt you down and give it to you – you will almost certainly have to fight them for fair treatment.

Its a David-versus-Goliath fight, so bring the best weapon

You are a hard worker, doing your best for your employer. In a fair world, every employee who suffers an injury on the job would automatically get the best treatment available and would also get a fair monetary settlement to make up for lost income and ongoing disability.

Unfortunately, this is not a fair world. The enormous corporations that usually operate workers’ compensation providers are there to meet the bare-minimum requirements for your recovery, and do so as cheaply as possible.

If ever there was a modern David and Goliath conflict, a workers’ compensation claim is it. So what are you going to do about it? Add the most effective stones you can to your sling and level the playing field.

An experienced lawyer with a heart for seeing the worker get fair treatment knows how to fight for your fair treatment, and can help ensure that you get every penny that you deserve.

Of course, the David and Goliath analogy only works so long. These fights are not about bringing down some big bad monster and destroying your employer – they are truly about getting you exactly what you deserve and not a penny less.

Even if your employer’s insurance provider has already denied your claim, an experienced lawyer can fight for your fair treatment!

If you are ready to get everything you deserve after your workplace injury, enlist the help of an experienced lawyer with a heart for the people. The right lawyer will fight tirelessly for you and ensure that your rights remain protected.
