The legal professional that is colloquially known as a workers’ comp or workmans’ comp lawyer is experienced not only in injury law but also often specializes in injuries that occur in the workplace or while on-the-clock.
With the endlessly varied jobs that exist in the state of Maryland, it can be quite helpful to hire a worker’s compensation attorney who not only has handled similar claims as yours but also similar claims within the same jurisdiction. Workers’ comp laws can vary from state to state, so it’s important to seek out a lawyer who knows the local regulations and can use this knowledge to your advantage.
Once you engage a worker’s comp law firm, your newly-acquired legal representation will begin to build your case. They will gather details and evidence regarding the injury, as well as document any damages, physical or otherwise, which you may have suffered.
It is vital for your attorney to have as much information as possible at their disposal; this way, they will be able to build the strongest claim possible. Once your case is ready, the attorney will then begin the often-confusing process of filing your claim.
After filing, it may be necessary to produce additional legal documents or to communicate with insurance companies. Your workers’ comp lawyer will handle all of this on your behalf.
Ultimately, the workmans’ comp lawyer who represents you will take care of all aspects of the case unless they explicitly require your input. Otherwise, you will be free to concentrate on recovering from your injury which can be a stressful process in itself.
If your injury requires ongoing treatment or even prevents you from working permanently, your workers’ comp attorney can work towards achieving a greater compensation for you, as well as applying for Social Security Disability benefits.
Understanding the role that the lawyer plays in the legal process is very closely tied to understanding why you should get a workers’ comp attorney. However, the advantages of having an attorney fighting for your claim are not always evident.
Simply put, a specialized attorney should be very familiar with the workers’ comp claims process, which is likely to result in a better outcome for their clients (the victim of the work injury.) Persons who have never handled a claim before are likely to make mistakes. Unfortunately, even the simplest mistakes can result in a reduction of benefits or even outright denial of the injury claim.
Even if you’re familiar with the process, a workers’ comp attorney can investigate and argue for additional types of damages and compensation which you may not be aware of.
Lastly, hiring a workers’ comp law office to represent you demonstrates your intention to get the most for your work injury accident. If insurance companies see that you’re well-represented, they’re more likely to put forth a higher settlement offer. And if an agreement cannot be reached, then your attorney can take whatever steps are necessary to continue the fight for your deserved injury compensation.
Truthfully speaking, you do not need legal representation to obtain a workers’ compensation settlement. On the other hand, as we’ve mentioned on this page, having a lawyer there to represent your best interests has the potential to maximize the compensation amount for your claim.
The insurance company who is responsible for paying out your claim will employ as many tactics as possible to save themselves some money. In fact, to remain in business, insurance providers try to reduce the payout of every single claim. If they see that a claimant doesn’t have a lawyer handling their claim, they may try to take advantage of this situation.
All manner of intimidation tactics may be used by insurance companies, including saying that you’re not eligible for benefits or having their own team of lawyers contact you in an attempt to get you to surrender your claim.
Our attorneys have seen many unscrupulous tactics before, they know what to do to stop them, and they can do the same for you. If you’re not sure if you have a claim, remember that our team can answer all of your legal questions in a free case review – simply give us a call today.
Every workers’ comp law office may possess different payment structures. However, the experienced work injury lawyers who form part of the Maryland Injury Guys team handle claims on a contingency fee basis.
A contingency fee payment structure is what is generally known as “No Win, No Fee.” This is to say if our attorneys are not able to secure compensation on behalf of the workplace injury victims they represent, then no attorney or legal fees will be owed.
Legal representatives must devote a significant amount of resources and time for claims to be successful. If the injury victims we represent aren’t successful in their claims, we don’t find it fair for us to be compensated, regardless of how much money has been spent in the claims process.
In this manner, the best interests of our clients are the same as those of our attorneys, and both parties aligned in their goals. We’ve found this to be the best structure for both parties, and it’s exactly why we’ve chosen to manage all of our worker’s comp claims in this way.
