What Will My Attorney Do For Me in My Workers’ Comp Case?

If you’ve suffered a workplace injury, it’s important that you consider hiring a workers’ compensation attorney. Since workers’ comp law is complex and highly specialized, it can be difficult to receive the benefits you deserve on your own. Your employer may deny your benefits, your benefits may not cover all of your expenses, or your benefits may not be paid out on time in the right amounts, among other complications. In order to have the easiest experience possible, while still maximizing your benefits, you should consider hiring a Massachusetts workers’ comp attorney.

What Your Attorney Will Do for You

Apart from answering any questions you may have, your workers’ comp lawyer will do everything possible to take the weight off your shoulders and arrive at the best possible outcome. Your attorney will:

  • Guide you step-by-step through the legal process, advocating on your behalf
  • Make sure you receive proper medical care
  • Make sure that you file all the necessary forms
  • Make sure you meet all deadlines
  • Gather medical evidence to document your injuries
  • Estimate the value of your case
  • Evaluate settlement offers
  • Advise you on filing for Social Security disability benefits if you are permanently injured

  • Prepare you for potential court hearings
  • Represent you at hearings and trials
  • Make sure everything runs as smoothly as possible
  • Help with an appeal if necessary
