Sometimes we have accidents, and sometimes they can happen at work. When this happens, we contemplate making a worker’s compensation claim if it seems necessary. But a lot of the time we ponder if hiring a lawyer for our worker’s compensation claim is the right thing to do. The simple truth is, yes, hiring a lawyer to help you with your worker’s compensation claim will be very beneficial to you in the long run. There are many reasons why and what a lawyer can do for you, such as making sure all the details are filed, they know the process, and if needed they can help you appeal.
Making Precise Details
The first thing we are capable of doing is handling all your details of the accident and making sure we get you the benefits you need. It is possible to mess up on the process as it can be long and tedious, that is why the lawyers at Brunton Law Office in Collinsville, Illinois will make sure all your details are in place. We are able to make sure all your paperwork is accurate, help you gather all the evidence and records, all the expenses for medical bills, as well as lost wages.
Knowledgeable Of The Process
We also are experienced in this process of filing for worker’s compensation. We know the loops and holes in the process and how to ensure you get the best benefits possible. If you try to do this alone, you may become confused as it is not a usual process and you could potentially mess up on a few details here and there. With our experience in the field, we can help you understand how the claim should be made in accordance with the laws, we can guide you through the steps, we know the benefits and can let you know if you’re not getting what you deserve, and we know how to communicate around the tactics insurance companies and employers may use to deny or belittle your claim.
The Appeals Process
Not only can we make sure we have all the details correct for filing your claim and know how to work with the process, but we also know how to work the appeals process if your claim is denied. When you get denied, it becomes harder to receive the benefits that you want. When we appeal the denial, you will have to participate in some hearings, filled with tight deadlines and you must show strong evidence. That is why it is in your best interest to hire one of your lawyers to walk you through the process in case this may happen! We can ensure you start off on the right foot and make sure your worker’s compensation claim is in the right direction.
