When you get injured at work, you may be worried about a few things. Even if you’re insured, medical bills can add up quickly, not to mention the wages you may lose if you have to take time off of work. Thankfully, worker’s comp lawyers are experienced with handling work injury cases and can help you get the compensation you’re entitled to. Although insurance companies might be quick to pay for medical bills or lost wages, many people may not know that with the help of a work accident attorney, you could be eligible to receive a lump sum settlement for your injury.

What to Do After an Injury at Work

If you get hurt at work, the first thing you should do is notify your employer of the incident, and then seek medical treatment. It is important to take care of your own health as soon as possible so that your condition doesn’t worsen over time. You may be required to see a physician that your employer refers you to, but you aren’t required to be fully treated by that doctor or hospital. After you seek medical treatment, contacting a work accident attorney to discuss the details of the incident is a good idea, because insurance companies may not be quick to reimburse you for the money you spend on doctor visits or the money you lose missing work during recovery.

Insurance Companies Aren’t on Your Side

We’d all like to think that the insurance companies we pay premiums to are looking out for us in the event that we need their help, but the truth of the matter is that insurance companies are looking out for their bottom line, not yours. Studies have shown that individuals who file worker’s comp claims without an attorney receive almost three times less compensation than people who filed their claim with a work accident attorney. Insurance providers may try to trick claimants into saying the wrong thing that will impede their ability to receive compensation. Worker’s comp lawyers know these tricks, and will work against them to fight for the injured party’s rights.
