The Insurer’s Legal Team: Reason #1 for a Shasta Workers’ Comp Lawyer
Many people have little or no experience with California workers’ compensation law before being unexpectedly thrust into circumstances where they must file a claim.
Now you’re facing a long and difficult recovery and aren’t entirely sure how you’re going to make ends meet in the coming months. Your first priority is to protect your rights—and to do that, you must know them.
The first thing we’re going to tell you is this:
Your employer’s workers compensation insurance provider is not your friend.
Of course you should always treat representatives with respect, but always be aware that
- Nothing you say to an insurer is off the record, and
- Anything can come back to haunt you.
Insurers have full-time legal teams set up to save them as much money on your claim as possible. It’s incredibly easy for someone new to the workers’ compensation world to make a statement or sign a document that could severely limit his or her future options.
For many injured workers, the best way to combat the insurer’s legal team is to hire their own representation. A Shasta disability attorney can help you by:
- Explaining documents in language you understand so you know what you’re signing before you sign it.
- Determining if there are any other benefits you may also be entitled to.
- Protect you against losing your case to simple issues like filing deadlines or miscommunication.
A Shasta workers' compensation attorney can do all these things—and many more. To learn more about how the team at Ledgerwood Law can help, call 888-761-7383. Be sure to ask for our free and informative report, The Northern California Workers’ Compensation Survival Manual.
