If you have been injured at work, you may be able to make a disability claim, either to your work, to your insurance company, to the government, or all of the above. It doesn't matter who you are making a claim to; you want to make sure that you have an attorney who can help you. There are several reasons why you should make sure that you are working with an attorney who makes disability claims after you have been injured at work.
Differing Legal Requirements
One of the reasons you should work with an attorney when making disability claims is that each agency you are making a claim through will have different requirements and may have other things that they need to have by law. Trying to keep track of all of that information on your own while trying to handle everything else can be really tricky for you, and you may end up missing something. A lawyer who specializes in this kind of law will know what can and can't be asked and what kind of proofs and information you are going to have to provide.
There may be times that you have to go to court while you are making your claims. Any time you have to appear in court, you should have an attorney with you so that you have someone who understands everything that is going on and who can make everything clear to you to understand everything. The attorney representing you will be able to answer all of the judge's questions and make sure that any questions you may have been taken care of. The attorney will also make sure that you don't say anything to the judge or someone from the other side of the case that could end up hurting your case.
If you get turned down by any of the agencies you are applying for disability through, you may appeal the case. But if you are going to do that, you may only have a limited amount of time to do so, and you may have to meet new requirements or provide further information. Your attorneys can help you with that and make sure that you get everything done with the deadlines.
