When Should You Call a Worker's Compensation Attorney?, Groton, Connecticut

Worker’s compensation is designed to help employees pay for medical expenses and lost wages after sustaining a job-related injury or illness. While it may seem like it should be easy to claim these benefits, it can be quite a challenge, depending on the circumstances surrounding the case. This is why it’s typically recommended you consult with an attorney before filing. In most instances, retaining legal representation should be one of the first steps you take after being injured aside from seeking medical treatment and notifying your employer. 

Oftentimes, people make the mistake of waiting to hire an attorney until a problem arises with their claim. If you already have counsel, however, you can prevent many of the issues that come up in worker’s compensation cases or at least make sure they’re addressed in a timely manner. Without legal assistance, the chances of your claim being denied or your benefits significantly delayed increase substantially.
