Workers' Compensation: When You Should Contact An Attorney

Immediately after you have been injured at work one question that often comes up is whether you should contact an attorney concerning your rights and obligations as an injured worker. Unfortunately, it is all too common for injured workers to delay contacting an attorney. This can weaken the claim and put the injured workers' financial future in jeopardy.

Anyone injured at work needs to understand that as soon as the injury is reported by the injured worker, a group of highly skilled individuals begin to take actions in an attempt to defeat or at least limit the injured workers' claim. These individuals include human resources managers, claims adjusters, nurse case managers and insurance legal counsel. To level the playing field, it is critical that the injured worker receives competent legal advice as soon as possible after the injury occurs. At Davis & Davis Attorneys At Law, we are ready, willing and able to provide this advice to injured workers as soon as we are contacted.

The injured worker should not hesitate to contact us because of financial concerns. We will meet with an injured worker to provide a consultation regarding their rights free of charge. Any fee that we earn will be based upon our providing services that allow the injured worker to obtain benefits or to keep benefits that have been challenged by the employer. Any fee earned must be approved by a workers' compensation judge. There is no fee unless your workers' compensation claim is successful.

The Injured Worker Has The Right To Choose Their Attorney

For an attorney to be effective in a workers' compensation case, they need to have substantial experience in such matters.

At Davis & Davis Attorneys At Law, we have been handling workers' compensation cases in Fayette County, Washington County and Westmoreland County for more than 30 years. We possess the experience, knowledge and commitment to handle your case.

Oftentimes, an injured worker receives direction from various persons in an attempt to steer them to a particular attorney. The choice of who will represent an injured worker is purely up to the injured worker. Neither the employer, the union or even the injured workers' doctor should make this decision. Rather, the injured worker should choose who they feel most comfortable with. On occasion, an injured worker will be told that a particular attorney will offer a discount on the attorney fee to be charged. In most cases, Davis & Davis Attorneys At Law will be willing to meet any such discounted fee.
