Why Hire a Workers’ Compensation Attorney?

Workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to protect all workers who are injured on the job or develop a medical condition because of their job. In an ideal world, every worker who qualified for workers’ compensation would get benefits when needed.

We do not live in a perfect world.

Each year, workplace accidents in Hollywood and Southern Florida cause devastating injury and even death. When workers and families turn to workers’ compensation benefits, however, many with legitimate claims find their benefits denied or cut off.  In some cases, workers with real injuries have a hard time securing benefits or proving their injuries.

In all these cases, a workers’ compensation attorney can help. If you haven’t applied for benefits yet, an attorney can help you apply so you have the best chances of securing benefits. If you run into delays or rejections, a workers’ compensation attorney in Hollywood or your community can stand up for you, fighting for your rights.

Workers’ compensation attorneys work with a team of experts to help you. An attorney usually can quickly find qualified medical experts and consultants as well as other professionals who can help you argue your case in court. If you have questions, an attorney can also help address these.

An attorney can explore all your options. If you have been injured on the job in Homestead or anywhere in Southern Florida, a workers’ compensation attorney can explore your options for workers’ compensation benefits, Social Security benefits, or an injury claim. You may have more than one source for getting secure compensation to pay for your medical bills and injuries.

One of the biggest reasons many injured workers ultimately hire a workers’ compensation attorney is because not all qualified workers get the benefits they are entitled to by law. In some cases, employers break the law and don’t purchase the correct protections and insurance for their workers. In other cases, employers or insurers reject legitimate claims. Sometimes, the medical doctors hired by insurance companies will prematurely stop benefits, alleging a worker has recovered enough to return to work – even if this is not the case. Don’t allow your benefits to be unfairly denied or cut off. Work with a personal injury attorney to protect your rights and to ensure your financial safety if you have suffered a workplace injury.
