How to Know If You Need a Work Injury Lawyer
What Can a Work Injury Lawyer Do?
Apart from your choice of the doctor, your choice of a lawyer is also very crucial when it comes to establishing your injury claim. If you hire a lawyer from the start, they can help you assess important matters such as the following:
- What are your options if your worker’s compensation insurer suddenly decided to stop paying your weekly benefits?
- Should you accept a settlement or lump sum from the insurer or employer if they offer it to you?
- What if you were terminated by your employer because you were injured or filed a worker’s compensation claim?
- Do you have the option of going to your own doctor or getting a second opinion if you disagree with the doctor that you originally sought an opinion from?
Apart from this, you may also be unaware that you actually have the option to file a third-party liability lawsuit against a negligent party who is not your employer. This might also help you in the overall determination and satisfaction of your claims.
