Filing a Workers' Compensation Claim? 3 Reasons You Need an Attorney, Brookville, Pennsylvania

When you've suffered an injury or developed a medical condition as a result of your job duties, workers' compensation insurance can pay your medical expenses and lost wages until you rejoin the workforce. However, the filing process is complex and opaque, which means it’s necessary to have the guidance of a skilled legal representative like Achille, Ellermeyer, Wallisch & Sobol Attorneys At Law in Brookville, PA.

Below are a few benefits of hiring a workers' compensation attorney:

  • Filing Paperwork: The more severe your injuries, the more complicated the workers' compensation process becomes. The stress of recovering from your medical condition makes it easy to miss deadlines, and late filings can threaten your ability to claim the benefits you deserve. Your attorney is duty-bound to look after these matters so you can be certain paperwork will be filed on time.
  • Brookville-PA-workers'-compensationMaximizing Benefits: The insurer or your employer may attempt to pay you less than the full amount of benefits awarded to you under the law. Your workers' compensation attorney will thoroughly review the settlement to ensure your rights are respected. Simply having a lawyer even may prevent these types of situations from happening.
  • Keeping Future Rights Open: Many injured workers accept a settlement and permanently close their case only to experience complications from their condition later. Your attorney will ensure you maintain future rights and get the treatment you need if anything unexpected occurs.
