The video talks about workers’ compensation and some tips about when to hire an attorney. The best time to contact a workmans compensation attorney is immediately following an incident where a worker gets hurt on the job. Workers’ compensation attorneys are in business to make money. They make their money off the premiums the employers pay. They then save money by paying out as little as possible to the people who claim compensation.
Therefore, it’s in a victim’s best interest to contact an attorney who handles such cases right away.
A claimant should never sign anything that a workers’ compensation insurance company gives to him or her without first having a lengthy discussion with an attorney. The reason is that the company might change some of the information in the paperwork and cause the claimant to receive less than what he or she agreed to. In some cases, the insurance company can stop making payments within the first six months.
Workers who have two jobs should contact an attorney right away as well. The reason for this is that they might be eligible for more benefits than they realize. In that case, it’s in their best interest to talk to the specialist who can get them the maximum amount of benefits.
