Workers’ compensation is seldom a straightforward process. While this benefit is marketed to protect workers when injured, it often serves employers more than their injured employees. Moreover, employers and the insurance companies providing these benefits do not make it easy for injured workers to collect. They have tactics to minimize, if not altogether deny claims. They do so by undervaluing the injury, minimizing the workers’ pain, attributing the injury to non-work-related causes, or even arguing that the injury was a pre-existing condition.
Employers and insurance companies also prey on the fact that workers often don’t know the full extent of workers’ compensation protections and the financial remuneration they may be entitled to. The insurance company and the employers may make an offer that seems attractive to the worker when the worker has no idea that they’re legally entitled to significantly more. That’s why you need an experienced Media workers’ compensation attorney to protect your rights and ensure you receive the maximum benefits available under the law. The Law Office of Deborah M. Truscello proudly serves the people of Delaware County and across Pennsylvania from their office in Media, PA.
1. Strong Understanding of Workers’ Compensation Law in Delaware County
Each state has unique laws surrounding workers’ compensation benefits. Hiring a local attorney based in your area will prove invaluable, as you can rest assured that your attorney knows the law and will help you collect the maximum compensation you’re entitled to. They will know the ins and outs of the local system, allowing them to ensure you’re not missing out on any benefits to which you are rightfully due.
2. Help With Filing Your Claim
Workers’ compensation claims are unnecessarily complex and may be rejected on a procedural error, rather than the actual injury or illness that occurred. An experienced attorney can help you ensure that all of the paperwork is properly filed, ensuring no detail or document slips through the cracks. They will ensure that the claim is complete, accurate, and filed on time, eliminating the risk of a denied claim due to a technical error.
3. Maximizing Your Compensation
An experienced workers’ compensation attorney will fight aggressively so you see the maximum compensation available for your injury or illness. They will ensure you receive compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, vocational rehabilitation, and more. They will take on the insurance companies, negotiating a settlement that is fair and reflects the entirety of your losses.
