Should I hire an Attorney for my workers compensation claim?
MO Workers Compensation Attorney
Roskin & Hoffmann, LLC
From the beginning of the Workers Compensation claim the insurer and the employer have an attorney and so should you.
You have the right to an attorney at any point in the workers compensation process. Studies have been conducted that show that unrepresented parties are at a disadvantage in the workers comp process when compared to those who are represented. The following are some situations where a work comp attorney is essential:
- The insurance company has denied your workers compensation case.
- You need more medical care or you are not getting the medical attention that you need.
- Medical care you are supposed to be receiving is being delayed or canceled.
- You are not getting weekly benefit checks.
- No one is available to talk to you about what is going on.
- You are told that you committed a safety violation and your benefits are going to be decreased.
- You don't know what to do next.
- You are being intimidated.
- You have been fired, demoted or harassed because you have asserted your rights to workers compensation.
- Your private insurance has paid for your medical treatment.
- You have medical bills that are being sent directly to you.
- You believe that you are permanently and totally disabled.
- Your employer did not have workers compensation coverage.
- You believe that a hearing (trial) will be necessary to obtain everything that is owed to you.
- A workers comp Judge has strongly advised you to seek counsel.
How can I afford an attorney?
At The Law Firm of Roskin & Hoffmann, LLC , we represent workmans compensation clients on a contingency fee basis. That means that there will never be any money taken out of your pocket. We only get paid if you get paid. Even if the workers compensation case is lost, we do not ask for anything to be paid back, including expenses that we have paid out of our pocket.
What if I have an attorney and I am unhappy with him or her?
A person with this problem is not required to remain with their current attorney. However, most problems arise from a lack of communication about what is taking place or what will take place. Having in mind proper expectations as to what is going to happen next goes a long way in having peace that you are in the right spot. Try to talk to your current workers compensation attorney about this. If that fails then looking for a new work comp attorney might be in your best interest.
