Worker’s Comp Attorney in Los Alamitos
Injured at Work? Hire a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
When you’ve been hurt at work, your employer is almost always required to carry worker’s compensation to cover the treatment of your injuries. This means that you cannot sue your employer. There are many times when hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer is important. Whether or not to hire a lawyer when you’ve been hurt at work will depend upon the severity of the injuries, and the type of work environment where you are employed.
Reasons to Hire a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
If you were injured in a work setting with heavy equipment that has malfunctioned, or if you work with independent contractors whose role has impacted your injuries, you will want an experienced lawyer to explain these employer liabilities to you. You should hire a lawyer if you will be off work for a long time and you have a severe injury. If there’s any questions about the cause of your accident or who are responsible, a lawyer can represent you to investigate your accident. If the injuries you received involve expensive treatment, hiring a workers’ compensation lawyer is the best choice.
The Claims Process
A workers’ compensation attorney can deal with the often-complex workers’ compensation claims process. Your employer’s insurance company may not always offer you a settlement that is adequate to cover the expenses related to your injury. When that’s the case, our lawyer can give you a powerful voice and can use specialized knowledge of the claims process to make it go smoother.
