3 Types of Workplace Injury Scenarios for Receiving Workers' Comp, Coram, Montana

Almost all workplace injuries are covered by workers' compensation insurance, which leads many employees to believe they won't need professional representation. Unfortunately, even minor mistakes can cause the workers' compensation board to deny your claim, which is why having the guidance of an experienced professional is necessary.

According to Bothe And Lauridsen, one of Northwest Montana's premier workers' compensation firms, recommends hiring an attorney for the following workplace injuries:

  • Sudden Accidents: Whether you've simply been hurt in a fall or suffered severe injuries in a major accident, the guidance from a good attorney will be instrumental in getting the benefits you deserve as quickly as possible. In all but the minor cases, you'll want a legal professional to ensure your settlement is fair and includes all of the benefits you're entitled to receive.workplace injuries
  • Work-Related Medical Conditions: Other medical issues, like carpal tunnel syndrome or lower back pain, are the result of damage that accumulates over time and can't be attributed to a single cause. If your employer disputes the cause of your condition, you might need a workplace injury attorney to help prove liability.
  • Psychological Trauma: It's not uncommon for stressful or difficult working conditions to cause emotional distress, depression, or severe anxiety. Just because these workplace injuries are not physical doesn't mean you should suffer the consequences without support. Your workers' compensation attorney will present your case in the strongest light, so you get the benefits and attention you need to return to work as quickly as possible.
