Workers' compensation cases can be lengthy and complicated, so you may not be prepared to handle one by yourself. It’s important to hire an attorney you can count on to fight for you. The workers' comp and personal injury lawyers at Jones & Jones, PC, Attorneys at Law, have provided legal help to clients throughout the Andalusia, AL, area for over 60 years. In that time, they’ve learned about every tactic insurers and employers use to avoid paying what they owe. Below, the firm discusses three benefits of hiring an attorney for your workers' comp claim.
1. You'll Have Someone Fighting For You
A workplace injury can have a dramatic impact on your lifestyle, including your ability to support yourself. Hiring a personal injury lawyer to stand up for you and protect your rights allows you to focus on your recovery. This is especially beneficial when the insurance company is trying to deny your claim.
2. You'll Have the Services of a Skilled Negotiator
In many workers' comp cases, the art of negotiation is central to reaching a settlement. Your attorney will represent your interests and speak on your behalf, and they can recognize when an offer is fair and when it warrants further discussion. Working with a strong negotiator ensures you will receive the compensation you deserve.
3. You'll Have Someone to Deal With Your Employer
Your employer might demand that you return to work, regardless of whether you have fully recovered. They might even try to disregard medical restrictions or tell you that treatment is no longer necessary. In cases like these, a personal injury lawyer will speak to your employer and let them know they are in violation of the law.
