It seems like everyone unanimously agrees that you need a workers comp attorney, but have you ever wondered why? How can an attorney actually help you obtain workers comp benefits for your on-the-job injuries or illness?
And what better way to answer these questions than to ask a lawyer? That is why we invited our Los Angeles on-the-job injury attorney from the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach.
While it is clear that the purpose of hiring a workers comp attorney is to “win” the case, the vast majority of injured workers have no idea what it takes to achieve that goal. Here’s a non-exhaustive list of the things a workers comp attorney can do to help you win:
Top law firms in California such as the Law Offices of Kropach & Kropach charge their clients after winning the workers comp claim and obtaining benefits on their behalf. After a case has been settled, a certain amount of attorney fees will be taken out of your workers comp benefits once you have received a settlement or verdict. Usually, the attorney fee has to be approved by a workers comp judge.
While it may seem that you are capable of representing yourself and do not need an attorney by your side, do not be mistaken. While you may be able to successfully obtain workers comp benefits when these benefits are insignificant and/or your employer is willing to cooperate, you need an experienced on-the-job injury lawyer in Los Angeles, North Hollywood, and elsewhere in California if:
Let’s be honest, there are drawbacks to pretty much anything, and hiring an attorney for your workers compensation claim is no exception. Many people are frustrated over the attorney fees, but you have to understand that skilled attorneys do not charge fees unless they win the case. Also, do not forget that when people are represented by a Los Angeles on-the-job injury attorney, they usually maximize the value of their claim as their lawyers look into other available sources and benefits.
