Mr. Legal Mustache, Why Do I Need a Work Comp Lawyer? Surely It Can't Be Too Complicated!
I understand that some prospective clients may not believe that a Work Comp attorney is necessary. I propose playing a game; it's called "Did You Know?" It's a small series of questions about Work Comp injuries. It's certainly not exhaustive whatsoever, but it may show you that Work Comp can be a little more complicated than simply "I got injured, now I get paid." Certainly the insurance company won't always see it that way.
Did You Know?
Did you know that negligence is not a factor when it comes to whether you are entitled to benefits?
So, Did You Know?
The reality is that Work Comp is not always clear, cut, and dry. An individual case can be nuanced and fact-specific.
But here's why you ought to hire an attorney: you aren't really on the hook for a fee unless there's a fight and you win. I'll monitor your case for free. And when the insurance decides to prematurely cut off your benefits, I'll be there on guard (like a lion!) ready to fight back. And at that point, would you rather fight that fight on your own, or let an attorney have 20% for the cause of protecting you?
The answer seems pretty clear to me. Call me at (651) 337-9876 or email me at [email protected] when you get hurt at work.
