If you’ve been injured in a work accident, you may have a lot of unanswered questions, especially if the accident was not your fault. Like most, the biggest issue on your mind will be how you’re going to pay your bills while you’re recovering from your injuries. After all, the paychecks stop once you’ve become temporarily disabled. You may also be wondering if you should retain a work accident attorney and if so, when. The thought of seeking legal help may not sit well with you, but it may be necessary in order for you to be able to take care of yourself and to ensure you’re properly compensated, in both lost wages and any medical bills that accumulate as a result of your medical care.
If you’re still unsure whether you should retain an attorney, consider the following:
- If the injury is due to your employer’s negligence, contact an attorney.
- If you’re told that the workers’ compensation does not cover your particular accident or injury.
- When you expect to lose time off from work because of your injuries.
The above examples are just a few of the reasons why an attorney may be necessary in your case. You’re going to lose income and opportunity to make money due to your work accident, and you’ll probably have mounting bills you cannot pay. A seasoned and experienced attorney can help you sort through everything and advise you accordingly, help you during your recovery and get you back to work.
