Here’s the difference a qualified work injury attorney can make in your recovery.
If you were recently hurt on the job, you might be pondering the possibility of hiring a work injury attorney. You may find yourself struggling with this decision. After all, you don’t want to create tension with your employer or put your job in danger. Wouldn’t it be easier just to heal up and get back to work?
It’s not always that simple. Sometimes the healing time is far longer than expected. Other times, the employer’s insurance company refuses to cover all the necessary expenses. Once in awhile, an injured employee finds that their job is in jeopardy due to their injury. You don’t have to be left holding the bill at the end of your recovery.
Signs you need to hire a work injury attorney:
- The insurance company is trying to get out of paying you the compensation you deserve. Your settlement amount should not be restricted to your initial medical bills. Consider your future costs associated with physical therapy, chiropractic, massage, medications and other treatments to aid in pain management and recovery. Add to that your lost wages and the stack of unpaid bills on the counter. As you can see, your actual financial losses can be astounding. Don’t let the insurance company get away with robbing you.
- Your employer’s communication borders on harassment. Daily phone calls and emails requesting information are not uncommon, but they are not necessary. These are sure signs of panic coming straight from your employer’s human resources office. We advise our clients to forward all of those requests to their attorney so that the legal team can review the requests and respond in a considered and prudent way.
- The cause of your injury was gross negligence on the part of your employer. Your company is responsible for keeping you safe when you are on the job. If the working conditions they provided were unsafe, you possess all the leverage. There is no reason for your employer not to bend over backward to make sure you have everything you need to heal properly before getting back to work. Any amount of trouble is certainly a good reason to put in a call to a work injury attorney.
