Depending on the size of the business, many employers are required to have insurance coverage for workplace injuries. But just because your company has workers’ compensation insurance, it doesn’t automatically mean that you’ll get paid if you get hurt at work. If that happens to you, you’ll probably want to consult with a workers’ compensation attorney. Burnette & Payne have a few things for you to consider so you’ll know when to hire a workers’ comp lawyer:
- How much work did you miss? A lengthy recovery period is problematic when your workers’ comp claim is denied. If lost wages are hurting your family and medical bills are piling up, it’s time to call an attorney.
- How severe was the injury? The more serious the injury, the more difficult it will be for you to handle the financial costs. Reach out to a workers’ comp lawyer to help you file your claim from the start.
- What was the cause of the accident? It may not matter who was negligent or caused the accident. If you were hurt on the job, you may be entitled to benefits. Don’t make assumptions. Talk to an attorney to get the facts.
