Why Hire a Workers' Comp Lawyer

Why Hire an Atlanta Workers' Comp Lawyer?

Even in a case where the insurance company and employer are doing the right thing, there are still multiple advantages to hiring an Atlanta attorney.

Access to Knowledge & Answers

The insurance company and adjustor handle literally thousands of these claims, have been doing so for years, and know the workers' compensation front and backward. They also have attorneys who they can call whenever they have a question. You most likely have no knowledge or experience in these matters; without an attorney, you have no one to whom you can ask questions.

When you hire an attorney, you have access to knowledge—and knowledge is power. You will have an attorney to explain the law and guide you through every step of the process. Without that type of help, you may not know whether the insurance company is doing the right thing or telling you everything you should know. Without a lawyer, you also will not know what benefits are supposed to be available, so you will have no way to know if the insurance company is following the law.

"An Ounce of Prevention Is Worth a Pound of Cure"

There is an old adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure; it definitely applies in workers' compensation claims. Hiring an attorney early in a claim often prevents problems from arising. The attorney can make sure the claim is handled as it should be and in accord with Georgia law. Workers' compensation claims can get complicated, especially with respect to decisions regarding medical care, referrals, choices of doctors, switching doctors, second opinions, etc. It is usually far easier to prevent problems from arising then it is to solve them once they have arisen.

Also, it costs you nothing to have an attorney in a claim that is being paid, until the case is settled or the attorney gets some benefits for you that the insurance company was not paying already. So you get free advice in the short run, and a larger settlement at the end of the process. Having an attorney will always result in a larger settlement than you will get without an attorney, for the reasons mentioned above, as well as a plethora of other reasons. Why not have free advice all along, and a larger settlement at the end than you could get on your own?

Guiding You Step-By-Step

There are multiple other advantages to having an attorney, including not having to deal with the adjustor yourself and just concentrating on your recovery, not having to worry about the unknown, having your own attorney and counselor to talk to, having information available on the doctors who are treating you and the type of injury you have, etc. The list of advantages is long.
