Frequently Asked Workers’ Compensation Questions

Sponsored – When you or a loved one has been injured on the job, you need a workers’ compensation attorney to help you get the benefits you are entitled to in Missouri. It is not a good idea to go through the process alone. To help you understand why, we would like to answer some frequently asked questions we often get about workers’ compensation.

Why do I need an attorney?

After you have been injured at work, your employer’s insurance carrier dictates your health care and compensation. They are focused on saving themselves as much money as possible, which means as little treatment, time off, and compensation for you as possible. A skilled attorney can use their experience and wisdom to fight the insurance company and make sure you get the outcome you deserve.

How long will my case take?

The length hinges on the severity of your injury and how long you take to heal. Workers’ compensation benefits should cover not only your current medical costs, but also your future medical expenses to account for continued treatment. Once you have reached maximum improvement, where your condition is stable and not expected to improve beyond that point, it can still take six months up to a year to get the insurance company to pay all your benefits.

Can I receive benefits if I was already injured or sick?

Absolutely. If your new injury aggravates an existing illness or injury, then the old problem can be covered under workers’ compensation. You of course must prove the new injury irritated your existing problems, which a workers’ compensation attorney can help you do.

If you have suffered a work-related injury or illness, Northland Injury Law can help ensure you get full and fair compensation under the law.

When it comes to a lawsuit after an accident or injury, representation matters! Most people do not realize that insurance companies have teams of lawyers, investigators, photographers and defense experts who immediately go to work following a serious accident involving their insureds.  They hire these people to minimize their exposure throughout the claims process and to reduce the amount received by the victim. Northland Injury Law aims to level the playing field for their clients.

This is an excellent law firm. They helped me out after an accident and did an awesome job. I would recommend this law firm to anyone who needs a good lawyer.” – Toni B.
