When you get hurt at work, there are probably a lot of questions you have. If you’ve been seriously injured, you probably have questions for your insurance company, your boss, and maybe even a lawyer. If you’re not sure if you need a lawyer, there are two major things that will help you decided on whether to seek out legal representation, and they’re a lot more obvious than you may think.

Did You Have to Go to the Doctor or Hospital?

The first thing that a lawyer can help with in workers compensation cases is if you’ve had to seek medical attention for your injuries. Insurance companies may try to offer you a pittance as a settlement in order to get the case to go away, and the average person will not be able to tell that these low offers are bad ones. Oftentimes, your injuries are worth a lot more compensation than what an insurance company will offer you if you don’t have a lawyer. Workers compensation lawyers know better about what cases like yours are worth and will fight insurance companies for what you deserve. If you’ve been injured and have medical bills, don’t sign any papers or agree to anything an insurance company offers you without discussing it with a lawyer first.

Have You Had to Miss Work?

A second big reason for people to hire legal help after getting hurt at work is if they have had to miss any work due to the injury. Whether you need to rest or you have to go to doctor appointments and have been unable to work, and in turn unable to collect wages, you may be entitled to lost wages compensation. Again, this will be hard to fight for without the help of a lawyer. Workers compensation lawyers will be able to pinpoint exactly how much compensation your injury case deserves and will be able to fight for your rights as an injured person. You shouldn’t have to worry about how you’ll pay bills if you’ve had to miss work after getting hurt. Lawyers can ease your mind regarding that issue. If you’ve gotten hurt at work and have had to miss shifts as a result, discuss the incident with a workers comp lawyer for help and advice.
