How Much More Money Will I Get If I Work With a Lawyer for My Workers’ Compensation Case?

Posted by Liz Delsa | Jun 07, 2023 | 0 Comments

This is a question many potential clients ask – is it worth it to retain a lawyer to help me with my workers' compensation case? We believe that in most cases an experienced workers' compensation lawyer can add real value to a workers' compensation claim in ensuring you receive all benefits you are entitled to and maximizing your recovery. How much more you may receive is a harder question because each worker's compensation case is unique and depends upon various factors, including your injuries, medical treatment, and work restrictions.

What an Experienced Workers' Compensation Attorney Can Offer

Hiring an experienced workers' compensation attorney can be beneficial in various ways, including:

- Knowledge of the workers' compensation laws and the procedures and deadlines that apply to workers' compensation claims.

- Experience in dealing with employers and insurers which helps to understand how they think and what arguments will and won't work with them. Many times employers or insurers may deny a claim without a valid defense with the hope a worker does not pursue the claim or retain the services of an attorney.

- Maximizing recovery. Attorneys are skilled negotiators and can assist in ensuring you receive a settlement which is fair to you. Also, when an employer and insurer know you have an experienced attorney, they will have to work much harder to win the case if it goes to a hearing, which gives them an incentive to offer more to settle your claim.

- Knowledge of when to accept a settlement and when to refuse it and move forward to a formal hearing, which can have its own risks.
