Being injured on the job is stressful all the way around – not only are you physically injured, but you also face mounting medical bills while your earnings stall. Obtaining the compensation you deserve through a workers’ compensation claim is the surest way of supporting your most-complete recovery, and the best way of getting there is by working closely with an experienced Virginia workers’ compensation attorney.
The fact is that you can file a workers’ compensation claim without an attorney, but doing so is very unlikely to do you or your claim any favors. While it is true that workers’ compensation insurance is in place to cover your damages (or losses) as they relate to your work accident, the insurance company involved is a for-profit enterprise. This means that anything it can get away with – in terms of minimizing your benefits – it will get away with.
In the end, the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Commission puts the matter of whether or not you should hire a workers’ comp attorney this way: You will be at a disadvantage without legal representation. An important point to keep in mind is that if your claim does not prevail, you won’t owe your attorney anything, and if it does, he or she will receive a prearranged percentage of your settlement or court award.
The following circumstances represent those stages in the claim process when having a dedicated workers’ compensation attorney in your corner is most important:
