An Experienced Workers’ Compensation and Personal Injury Lawyer
If you have been injured on the job or suffered an injury due to the carelessness of others, contact an experienced lawyer with a firm understanding of the nuances of workers’ compensation and insurance law. Workers’ comp insurance must be carried by employers to provide coverage to injured workers for lost wages, medical and rehabilitation expenses, and other benefits. When you are injured, an experienced workers’ comp attorney can help to maximize your compensation and ensure that you are being treated fairly. Likewise, in personal injury cases, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced lawyer to represent you, as you can be certain that the insurance company has assigned someone to defeat your claim.
Protecting Your Rights
There are certain steps you need to take after any type of accident in order to protect your rights. In workers’ comp cases, it is essential that you report the injury to your employer and seek immediate medical attention. You could lose your case simply by not reporting it soon enough. After the injury has been treated, it is important to assess the situation to determine the benefits to which you are entitled.
Personal Injury cases require immediate action. There are statutes of limitation that govern different types of cases. Crucial evidence must be gathered and preserved to prosecute your claim successfully.
This is no time to decide to act on your own. You need an experienced lawyer to advise you and ensure that all deadlines are met for the filing of your claim or lawsuit.
