3 Ways an Attorney Can Help With Your Workers' Compensation Case, Columbia, Maryland

When you're hurt at work, workers' compensation should provide benefits that cover medical treatment and lost wages. However, the filing process is often confusing, which rules and deadlines that can be overwhelming for those recovering from a serious injury. In these instances, having your claim approved may depend on the guidance of a professional who has been through the process hundreds of times, according to Plaxen & Adler, a Columbia, MD, law firm.

Below are just a few ways a workers' compensation attorney can help with your case:

  • attorney-Columbia-MDPaperwork Preparation: In every state, the workers' compensation system has strict deadlines by which paperwork must be submitted. Missing even one could jeopardize your entire claim, so having your lawyer handle it for you will provide invaluable peace of mind.
  • Evidence Submission: If you're experiencing difficulty in having the board recognize your injury, an attorney can collect additional evidence and submit it to bolster your claim. In many cases, injury victims either submit too much information or accidentally omit some important pieces of evidence.
  • Appeal Representation: To many workers, a denied claim may seem like the final word, but there are actually a variety of options available. After reviewing your case, your workers' compensation attorney will recommend the best path forward and help you through the appeals process. Often, they will be able to get you the compensation you deserve even after an initial denial.
