Do I need Legal Representation to file a Worker's Compensation Claim?

If you have sustained an injury while on the job, or during the course of completing a work-related task, you may be wondering how to go about submitting a claim under your employer's workers' compensation policy. In these types of circumstances, we always advise individuals to secure legal representation before attempting to file for workers' compensation benefits.

While it is true that you can submit a claim on your own, getting legal assistance from an experienced Marietta personal injury lawyer from our firm can significantly improve your chances of having your claim approved so that you can receive the benefits you are rightfully owed. Individuals who are unaware of the rights afforded to them under workers' compensation laws, who are unfamiliar with the claim process, and who do not have the resources necessary to seek recourse, could easily find themselves unable to work, without the financial means to cover their accident-related expenses, and struggling to make ends meet.

Obtaining benefits under workers' compensation is not always a simple task. There are instances when an employer may attempt to challenge a claim or the employer's workers' compensation insurance company may try to outright deny a valid benefit request. There is no reason you need to be put in this type of situation legal aid is available to help you document your injury, file your claim and see that your rights are protected throughout the entire claim process.
