Do I need a lawyer?
If your employer has worker’s compensation coverage in place, then hiring a lawyer might seem unnecessary. After all, don’t you just have to fill out a form? In reality, workplace accidents and getting the benefits you need could be much more complicated than that. The insurance company might try to pay as little as possible for your workers’ comp claim. There are many situations where having the assistance of an experienced worker’s compensation lawyer will be helpful to you, including:
- The settlement offer isn’t enough to cover your expenses
- Your claim is rejected
- You’ve suffered a permanent disability that will prevent you from working
- A third-party was involved in your accident
- Your employer intentionally caused your accident
- Your employer retaliates against you
These and other situations can make your worker’s compensation claim extremely difficult to manage. One mistake could cost you significant amounts of money. You don’t need that kind of stress while also trying to recover from your injuries. A worker’s compensation lawyer will be able to ensure that your rights are protected. Your lawyer will work hard to make sure you receive the compensation you need after your accident, while you focus on recovering. They will also make sure that you file your claim correctly so that it is processed quickly and correctly.

Limitations of Worker’s Compensation
Remember that while worker’s compensation is intended to protect employees, that protection is not absolute. There are three main limitations to worker’s compensation that your employer or the insurance company might try to exploit to minimize your claim.
The first limitation is that worker’s compensation only applies to injuries that occurred while the injured person was on the job. Your employer might try to claim that you were not at work or that you were not doing work-related activities to get out of paying workers’ compensation.
The second major limitation to worker’s compensation is that it only covers medical expenses that are reasonably necessary. The term ‘reasonably necessary’ can mean very different things to different people. While you might consider expenses required to involve all the costs needed to be able to walk again, your employer might try to argue that it only means the costs needed to pay for a wheelchair.
The third major limitation of workers’ compensation is that it only applies to employees. Your employer might try to argue that you were an independent contractor or not employed by the company at the time of your injury.
