Why Do You Need a Worker’s Compensation Attorney?

Date: June 16, 2017 Category: Worker's Compensation Law

It happens to the best of us: we slip and fall on the job and injure ourselves. Or, through no fault of our own, we suffer from a workplace injury, and we're placed out of commission. But did you know that, in Wisconsin, if you work for a company that has three or more employees (except for a farm), you're entitled to collect money from a workers' compensation claim? While you think you can handle it on your own, only an experienced attorney who is well?versed in Wisconsin worker's compensation law can really help you get the settlement you deserve. Here are just a few of the many reasons why.

 

A Worker's Compensation Attorney Can Help You If Your Workplace Denies or Disputes Your Claim

Under Wisconsin law, any injury that occurs in the course of employment is compensable. It doesn’t matter whether the injury was caused by a single incident, repetitive motion, or exposure to chemicals or mold. You need an experience advocate on your side fighting for your right and getting you the settlement you deserve.

 

A Worker's Compensation Attorney Can Help You Maximize Your Benefits

Did you know that, as an injured party, you're entitled to receive both a settlement for your injuries and up to 2/3 of your weekly salary while you're recovering, in addition to the medical care you'll receive? Most non?attorneys don't realize this, but an experienced worker's compensation attorney will not only recognize this opportunity, but he will fight to recover what you deserve.

 

A Worker's Compensation Attorney Can Go Up Against Another Attorney

There's a strong possibility that your employer has already hired an attorney to represent it him/her in any proceeding you may file as a result of your injury. Why go into court unprepared for the battle ahead? Even if you think you know the law, unless you're a worker's compensation attorney, you don't know all the intricacies of the law, and you don't know how to defend your rights effectively. However, an experienced worker's compensation attorney can do all of this and more!
