If you get injured at work, your employer turns your injury over to their worker's compensation insurance company. Did you know that worker's compensation insurance companies have a team of attorneys working for them? These attorneys do not work for you. They work to protect your employer and the insurance company's best interests...and wallet. Many injured workers blindly follow the advice and direction of the insurance companies and their attorneys. Don't let this be you.
By contacting an attorney that knows workers' compensation law, you are leveling the playing field by having an advocate in your corner. Your income and your livelihood are at stake.
This may come as a surprise: Insurance companies have a business model where they like to take insurance premiums . . . but when it comes to paying claims, they do not like to write big checks. It's true.
Corporations in business for a profit have a very strong preference for minimizing the amount of money that goes out the door. Believe it.
