Workers’ Compensation Benefits & Claim
Almost every type of employment has a certain level of risk of injury, whether it be from an accident occurring on the job or exposure to hazardous substances. Workers’ compensation insurance gives a safety net for employees who experience and suffer from work-related injuries or sickness. A Victory Law Group, LLP employment attorney can help you do the following in your workers’ compensation claim:
- Respond to denials for medical treatments;
- Make sure you are receiving proper care and refer to a third party doctor for an evaluation;
- File all the necessary workers’ compensation claim paperwork on your behalf.
With workers’ compensation there are different types of benefits, such as medical treatment, temporary or permanent disability payments, and lump sum payment options. Unfortunately, insurance companies do not represent you and are not obligated to provide the best option for you. They often attempt to reduce or deny the above-mentioned benefits as your employer is the insurance company’s client, not you. For instance, they may attempt to argue that your injury or illness is not work-related and therefore deny your claim for workers’ compensation.
While you can do this on your own, you don’t have to. Here at Victory Law Group, LLP our mission is to provide legal services with Loyalty, Care, and Results. As your workers’ compensation attorney, we are here to represent you and only you. It is our duty to stand up for your rights and benefits and argue the strongest legal battle for you to receive fair compensation for your situation. Why do it on your own when you have a team of attorneys waiting to provide their help and expertise to make your life easier during those rough recovery days?
When Can I Receive Workers’ Compensation Benefits?
You can get medical treatment for your injuries or sickness right away. Once the medical providers are aware that you have a pending workers’ compensation claim, they cannot collect payment for medical treatment from you directly. To receive the other benefits, your workers’ compensation claim must be approved by the insurance company. While some cases may require an attorney to take the case to court to secure the workers’ compensation benefits, that is not always the case. It is important that an experienced employment attorney reviews your case.
