Many injured Denver employees seeking workers’ compensation or appealing a denied claim have thoughts along these lines at some point. They may feel as if working with a legal representative means they are being unnecessarily cautious, or even aggressive.
Think about the other times in your life when working with an attorney is understood to be an asset. You likely would not consider going through a divorce without a legal representative, especially if there were complicated financial matters involved. As the executor of a will for a deceased loved one, you’d likely work closely with a legal professional experienced in this field to ensure everything is done by the book. These are just a few examples; our readers can probably think of many more.
The fact is that workers’ compensation is a challenging system to navigate. It’s not something with which Denver employees are likely to have any prior understanding until they find themselves thrust into the middle of it due to a workplace accident. And at that point, there’s no room for learning from the mistakes you make in filing your claim. Even if a denied claim is successfully appealed, any little errors early in the process can dramatically reduce the benefits to which a worker would otherwise be entitled.
When you cannot work due to an injury and you need financial support, don’t hesitate to reach out to the Law Offices of W. Dan Mahoney, P.C. for a free consultation. Having an experienced legal professional on your side can help alleviate the stress and worry of the financial side, and let you focus on your recovery.
