Delray Beach Work Injury Lawyer

Delray Beach Work Injury Lawyer Delray Beach Work Injury Lawyer

 

If you were recently injured at your job, you should speak to a Delray beach work injury lawyer. A lawyer can help ensure you obtain the compensation you deserve and protect your legal rights. Here are some of the benefits of hiring a work injury lawyer:

Increase Settlement Amount

Although employers are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance, they may try to offer you a settlement that’s lower than you deserve. Your employer may incorrectly argue that you were partially at fault for the accident or not consider what your future medical costs may be. That is what a work injury lawyer is that for. He or she knows the true value of your injuries and will fight hard to help you obtain the highest possible amount of compensation.

Take Care of Paperwork

Filing for workers’ compensation involves a lot of paperwork, from medical records to witness statements. When you have just suffered an injury, you likely do not have the physical or mental strength to deal with all of this paperwork. You also might not understand all the legal jargon in this paperwork and file it incorrectly and delay your case. If you have a Delray Beach work injury lawyer on your side, he or she will handle this paperwork for  you so that you can take care of yourself.

No Legal Fees

Unfortunately, some people shy away from hiring work injury lawyers because they think they can’t afford them. However, the majority of these lawyers work on a contingency basis, meaning they take a percentage of your settlement. If  you don’t win your case, you don’t have to worry about owing your lawyer money. Additionally, a work injury lawyer is often motivated to work harder because he or she is not getting any upfront fees.

Find a Doctor

When you get injured at work, your employer will choose the doctor you go see. However, if you don’t believe this doctor is giving you the right diagnosis or treatment, you have the right to seek a second opinion. An experienced work injury lawyer knows of many doctors and can have your injuries re-evaluated as soon as possible. Finding the right doctor is very important, because if a person is not getting what is needed, then they would not only be wasting time, because the process of getting a new doctor could be a longer wait. This is especially imperative, when it comes to people who are suffering in pain and need assistance immediately, have an emergency that is related to an illness, which is rapidly growing worse and needs treatment quickly, etc.  These are some factors that should be taken into consideration.  

For example; let’s say that an individual is having severe pain in their lower area, that feels like it may be an appendix issue.  In such circumstances, it is imperative that the right doctor is found immediately, so that one can have a swift operation if needed, a strong recovery, etc.  In other circumstances, let’s say that a person has cancer.  To find the right doctor, a person would not only need to find doctors that deal with cancer, but the specific type of cancer issue would need to be assessed as well, to get the best results and treatment.  An example of this, would be doctors that focus on colon cancers, while another doctor would focus on thyroid cancers, while another doctor may have a strong focus on breast cancers, and more.  This is why finding the right doctor for a specific type of illness that one may have, is imperative to getting the best results and swift treatment.

Protect Against Employer Retaliation

Believe it or not, some employers get angry at their employees for filing workers’ compensation and retaliate against them. They may demote, reduce pay or even fire them. If this happens to you, it is good to have a skilled work injury lawyer on your side. Retaliating against an employee for filing for workers’ compensation is illegal, and your lawyer will do everything to protect your legal rights.
