Robert Golan, PC of Golan & Masiakos, provides guidelines on if you should contact a workers compensation attorney
Plainview, NY -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/28/2017 -- If you've been injured at work, you have to decide whether to hire a workers' compensation attorney or pursue a claim alone. If the case is fairly simple, legal assistance from a workers' compensation lawyer may not be necessary. For example, you may be able to pursue a claim alone if the following apply to you:
-The injury is minor
-The employer admits that the injury is work-related
-You missed little or no work due to the injury
-You have no pre-existing conditions or disabilities
Workplace injury cases, however, can become much more complicated. In these cases, a workers' compensation attorney can help you receive the entitled benefits. According to the National Law Review, workers who file a workers' comp claim without legal assistance usually receive only one-quarter of what their cases are actually worth. If any of the following are true, contact a workers' compensation attorney right away:
-The injury is moderate to severe, especially if it requires surgery
-The doctor believes that the injury will have a permanent effect on your health
-The employer denies the worker's claim
-The employer's settlement doesn't cover all lost wages or medical bills
-The injury prevents you from returning to the job or doing any work at all
-The boss has fired you, demoted you, or cut your hours/pay because you filed a workers' comp claim
-A third party contributed to the injury
-A pre-existing condition or disability
If at any point you feel unsure about the case, schedule a free consultation with a workers compensation disability attorney to identify any potential complications.
