When you’re injured on the job and want to seek benefits, it’s possible to try to get them on your own. However, if you’re unfamiliar with the process, you might not know what you’re eligible to receive. Insurance companies tend to take advantage of unrepresented workers applying for benefits. Additionally, specific forms need to get submitted, and insurance claims are required to get filed by particular deadlines. If you fail to send in your application within the necessary timeframe, you could miss out on receiving any payments for your medical treatment and lost wages.
Hiring an experienced workers’ compensation attorney ensures your claim gets handled correctly and promptly. Once you retain an attorney, they will immediately obtain a copy of your employer’s insurance policy to determine your eligibility for benefits. They will help you fill out the necessary forms and make sure they get submitted to the appropriate insurance representative.
Depending on the severity of your injuries and employment status, you could receive weekly payments for a variety of expenses. Your attorney knows laws stating which benefits you qualify for and the maximum period you should get paid. The most common benefits include:
- Reimbursement for past and future medical and hospital costs
- Prescription medication expenses
- Compensation for lost wages
- Expenses for traveling to and from doctor appointments
- Costs for rehabilitation
- Temporary or permanent disability
