Do I Need a Lawyer’s Help When Filing a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
No two work-injury cases are exactly alike. Too often, the workers’ compensation system is viewed as a “one-size fits all” enterprise. This is partially because the workers’ compensation system functions under a “no-fault” philosophy. This approach holds that when injuries happen on the job, the workers’ compensation insurance system will cover related costs regardless of whose fault the accident was. This approach helps to ensure that:
- Workers aren’t saddled with medical costs and lost wages in the aftermath of a work-related accident, work-related repetitive trauma injury, or work-related illness; AND
- Employers don’t have to worry (much) about being sued by workers if accidents are determined to be, at least in-part, the employer’s fault.
If you don’t need to prove fault, why would you need a lawyer’s help? That’s a valid question. We return to the reality that no two work-injury cases are exactly alike. Even though workers’ compensation insurance claims adjusters are “supposed to” pay claims out fairly – because fault isn’t a factor in this system – many insurance providers look for any possible excuse to protect their bottom line. They may reject, delay, and/or undervalue your case for any number of reasons. Our firm’s experienced West Palm Beach aggressive workers’ compensation lawyer team understands how these insurers work and how to present your case in ways that allow you the greatest possible chance at receiving the maximum amount of compensation to which you’re entitled.
It’s also important to understand that you either may not be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits (but are empowered to file a personal injury claim) OR may be eligible to file a workers’ compensation claim AND a personal injury lawsuit against a third party (generally not your employer) simultaneously. Once we learn more about your unique circumstances, we can advise you of your legal options so that you can make informed decisions about your situation.
