When You Need A Workers Compensation Lawyer
Sustaining an injury on the job or becoming ill as a result of working in specific types of conditions is difficult enough, but it becomes even more challenging if the Workers’ Compensation claim is denied.
For Marietta workers who experience a denial of the claim or are offered a low or incomplete settlement, having a workers’ compensation lawyer will be essential through the appeals process. There are very strict time limits for filing an appeal, so hire an attorney immediately to avoid missing this deadline.
However, even if your claim is being processed, speaking with an attorney with workers’ compensation experience is still a very smart decision. These cases are presented to a judge and all information and medical records have to be in place for a claim to be awarded.
Report any injury on the job or as a result of the job immediately to your supervisor. Ask your HR department, union representative or your employer to ensure you report to the right individual. Do this as soon as possible and do not wait.
Obtain information on approved doctors for the workers’ compensation examinations. Make an appointment and go to the appointment. If there are no approved physicians, ensure you can see your own doctor. Keep notes of all conversations.
With serious injuries contacting an attorney as soon as possible is important. This is very critical if you may not be able to return to your job because of the injuries or illness.
