Can a workers’ compensation lawyer help me obtain benefits and a settlement award?

Getting a workers’ compensation claim approved is not a quick—or easy—process. However, a worker’s compensation lawyer can help you get workers’ comp benefits approved, plus obtain a settlement award on your behalf more quickly for several reasons.
 
Workers’ compensation lawyers understand the process
 
If you have been injured on the job, you are probably aware that you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits, but you might not know where to begin. An attorney who regularly handles workers’ comp claims has an in-depth understanding of the process and will get started on your claim right away. This way, you will not have to take the time to learn about the process before filing your claim.
 
Worker’s compensation lawyers know how to prepare your claim effectively
 
The workers’ compensation system is an insurance-based program. Employers are required to purchase workers’ compensation insurance. When you file a claim, it will be the insurance company that ends up paying your benefits on behalf of your employer. Insurance companies handle thousands of these claims every month and have developed a strict system for submitting claims. When you work with an attorney, they will know exactly what is needed to submit your claim and what evidence to present to the insurance company.
 
Workers’ compensation lawyers understand the insurance industry
 
Filing a workers’ compensation claim does not guarantee that you will receive the full amount of benefits you deserve. Insurance companies routinely deny injured workers’ claims or try to settle their claims for less than the claim is worth. If you insist on receiving the maximum amount of benefits you are entitled to (which you should do!), negotiating with the insurance company can slow things down. By working with a workers’ compensation lawyer familiar with the insurance industry and how to negotiate with insurance companies effectively, you can expedite the process.
