Workers’ Compensation Attorney in San Antonio
Call San Antonio's Trusted Work Injury Lawyer Today
There are few things more distressing than finding yourself suddenly injured on the job and unable to work. Depending on the severity of your injuries, you may not be able to work for weeks or months. Some injuries can be so severe and debilitating that you could be unable to return to work for extended periods of time.
As an injured worker, you could be eligible to receive financial compensation for your damages, such as loss of wages, loss of earning potential, punitive damages, hospital expenses, and other accident-related costs.
Employers have the obligation to create and maintain a safe working environment for their employees. If they fail to do so, it can be considered negligence. If you have experienced an injury while working or while performing work-related duties, then you need to speak with our firm's San Antonio workers' compensation lawyer as soon as possible. We are here to listen to your story.
When Should I Hire a Workers Comp Lawyer?
You should consider hiring a workers' compensation lawyer in the following situations:
- Complex Case: If your workers' compensation claim involves complicated legal or medical issues, hiring a lawyer can help you understand your rights and navigate the complexities of the process.
- Claim Denial: If your initial claim is denied, a workers' comp attorney can assist in appealing the decision and gathering additional evidence to strengthen your case.
- Reduced Benefits: If you believe that the insurance company is offering inadequate benefits for your injuries or disability, a lawyer can help negotiate a fair settlement or take the matter to a hearing.
- Pre-existing Conditions: If you have a pre-existing condition that was aggravated by a work-related injury, proving the extent of the new injury can be challenging. An attorney can help differentiate between the pre-existing condition and the work-related injury to protect your rights.
- Disputed Liability: When the employer or the insurance company disputes the fact that your injury is work-related, a lawyer can help provide evidence and argue in your favor.
- Third-Party Liability: If a third party (someone other than your employer or a co-worker) contributed to your work-related injury, such as in a construction site accident, you might have a personal injury claim beyond workers' compensation. A lawyer can handle both types of claims simultaneously.
- Permanent Disability: For cases involving permanent disability, a lawyer can help ensure you receive appropriate compensation for long-term medical needs and lost earning capacity.
A workers' compensation lawyer can guide you through the legal process, protect your rights, and ensure you receive the full benefits you are entitled to under the law.
