Workers Comp: 3 Reasons to Lawyer Up

Posted by on July 26, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

When you have been injured on the job, the last thing you want to do is battle your employer for compensation to keep food on the table and a roof over your head. Unfortunately, that’s what often ends up happening and with all the pain and suffering you are already enduring, this just adds insult to injury, no pun intended. A good lawyer can cut through all the red tape for you, but how do you know when it’s time to lawyer up? It could very well be at the very beginning right after that initial visit to the doctor or ER. Here are three reasons to lawyer up and a word on when to do so.

1. When the Injuries Are Not Clear Cut

There may be times when initial examinations or x-rays may prove to be inconclusive as to the time and nature of the injury. While you, personally, know that you never suffered back pain, for instance, the tests can’t substantiate that these are new injuries. This would be a good time to keep your mouth shut long enough to make that phone call to a reputable team of workers compensation lawyers such as attorneys at Klezmer Maudlin in Indianapolis.

2. When The Insurance Company Is Overly Eager to Settle

If you get the feeling that the insurance representative from your employer’s provider seems to be overly eager to get you to settle, it just might be a good time to lawyer up. There’s something wrong with this picture, isn’t there? What insurance company wants to write a nice, big check? With that in mind, you should know that there is probably more to be had based on what they found within those medical reports you clearly don’t understand!

3. When Your Injuries Will Significantly Impact Your Future

You’ve just been given the bad news that you will no longer be able to perform the duties of the job you held. Whether it is in a warehouse or a diner or anything in between, if you will no longer be able to perform the work you have always done, it’s time to consult with an attorney at law. Not only will this injury prevent you from going back to your current position but it may very well impact the kind of jobs you can hold in the future. If your future finances and health will be significantly impacted, consult with a lawyer before doing anything else. It’s either live on charity or get the compensation you deserve to carry you forward into your future.

No one wants to get injured at work but the sad reality is that millions of people do each and every year. Sometimes it’s like pulling teeth to get the workers compensation you deserve. These are just three of the reasons to lawyer up, but in most cases, if the injuries are severe enough to impact your future, get a lawyer! Remember, your future will depend on getting the compensation you deserve and without legal counsel, you just might not get it. That’s a fact.
