When you are injured in a work accident, it can be a scary and overwhelming time. You are feeling pressure from all angles: medical appointments, bills to pay at home, reporting requirements for your accident, and your employer or its insurance company is asking questions about what happened. When this happens, you need an experienced Omaha workers’ compensation lawyer to represent you throughout the work injury process. Putnam Law Offices has the experience and the knowledge necessary to make sure you receive the best possible settlement for your claim.
When to Hire a Workers’ Compensation Attorney
We recommend that injured workers complete three important steps immediately after they are injured. Those steps are to report your injury, seek medical attention, and speak to an attorney. Generally we believe that the sooner you speak to a lawyer, the better off you will be in your injury claim. Our office will help make sure that your work accident is properly reported, your claim is filed on time, you are receiving the proper and timely medical care, you receive proper benefits, and that the insurance company is treating you fairly throughout the process. It can be difficult when attorneys are hired after the claim is already filed or in the appeal stage, because they will often be forced to operate with the evidence that has already been entered into the record without the ability to compile new evidence on your behalf. If you were injured at work, you should speak to an attorney as soon as possible to get them working for you.
