Is It Worth Getting A Workers' Comp Attorney?

Workers' compensation is a type of insurance coverage that employers must purchase to protect their employees. Just about every state in the US requires workers' comp insurance, and, perhaps most importantly, it is an expense that cannot be docked from an employee's paycheck.

Suppose an employee suffers an injury while performing work-related duties. In that case, the company's insurance plan will be responsible for the medical expenses associated with the injury and a portion of lost wages until the worker can return to work. The injured employee may also be entitled to disability benefits. 

On the other hand, employers may also protect themselves from civil lawsuits brought by injured employees by providing workers' compensation insurance.

Can You File A Work Injury Lawsuit?

Historically, before the workers' compensation system existed, workers would usually file lawsuits against their employer if they suffered any damages. As you can imagine, this made things very difficult for all parties; employees had to fight and battle long and hard before receiving any compensation, and employers had to deal with lawsuits even over minor workplace injuries.

The workers' compensation system has made a significant contribution to the process of getting employees the workers' compensation benefits they deserve. However, the current state of the workers' compensation system remains confusing and cumbersome. Insurers that are typically responsible for paying the benefits of workers' compensation claims are businesses, which means that every dollar they pay out is a loss to their bottom line. Due to this, insurance companies may attempt to delay paying any benefits, even if the claim is perfectly valid.

Workers' compensation attorneys in Pennsylvania are crucial in these cases because they help victims of workplace injuries gain the full benefits they deserve.

What Can An PA Workers' Comp Lawyer Do For Me?

It is extremely important to understand the role of the lawyer in the legal process in order to understand why you ought to retain a workers' compensation lawyer, but the advantages of having an attorney on your side often go undiscussed.

In short, an experienced workers' compensation attorney should have extensive knowledge of the workers' compensation claims process. This will result in a better outcome for their clients. Untrained individuals are more likely to make errors, which can lead to lower benefits or even denial of the injury claim.

Regardless of whether you are familiar with the process, a workers' compensation attorney will have the expertise to investigate and advocate for additional types of compensation and damages that you may not have considered.

The last reason to hire a workers' comp attorney for your case is to show your intent to collect maximum compensation for your work injury accident. If insurance companies see you have a lawyer on your side, they are more likely to make you a superior offer.

Do I Need Workers’ Comp Lawyer?

It is true that you do not need legal representation to obtain a workers' compensation settlement; however, having a lawyer there to represent your interests is likely to maximize the compensation amount for your claim.

Historically, when it comes time to pay a worker's medical bills, lost wages, physical therapy, ongoing care or other benefits, insurance companies are likely to fight back. This is not necessarily the case, however.
It is possible to be approved fairly fast for compensation when the worker's injury is directly related to employment or if the employer doesn't dispute the claim. A workers' compensation attorney can be particularly helpful in these cases since their knowledge almost always results in the victims receiving a larger compensation. A knowledgeable lawyer will understand exactly how to present a claim and speak directly with the insurance company to obtain every penny their client deserves.
