If you’ve been injured at work and you’ve never filed a workers’ compensation claim before, there are a couple of things you’ll need to do. Within 90 days of the accident, you have to report to your supervisor, or someone in a managerial position, that you were hurt and how you were hurt. You must do this to protect yourself. The other thing you have to remember is that there’s a time period that these claims have to be filed with a commission. This is a point you might want to discuss with a lawyer so you can understand other things you need to do in your case in order to protect yourself.
The Workers Compensation law provides that the insurance company has to pay for the medical care that the authorized treating physician recommends. If your doctor is trying to provide care to you, whether it be shots, injections, x-rays, or MRIs, and the insurance company will not pay, there may be a point in your case where you need to get a lawyer involved. This problem occurs most often when a doctor realizes your case is more serious than first thought and the insurance company doesn’t want to pay for the expensive care.
In a workers compensation case, the person is usually most concerned about how they’re going to pay for the lawyer. The beauty is that the attorneys who handle these cases, like ourselves, handle them on a contingency basis. This means that the attorney does not earn a fee in the case unless the client receives money from the insurance company. So, you don’t have to worry about paying a lawyer an up-front fee or an hourly fee. The lawyer is only going to be receiving a fee if the worker receives money from the insurance company.
