An attorney is important in workers’ compensation cases because without one, you may never get a hearing. Without a hearing, you may not get the necessary treatment or the correct amount of benefits. An attorney will get you more benefits than you’ll be able to get on your own. If you have been injured in a workplace accident or suffered an illness on the job, you will have several questions about your potential claims that an attorney can answer. At the Law Office of Frank A. Cetero, our workers’ comp attorneys will take the time to answer your questions and provide you with the information you need to make important decisions about your case. We want you to feel confident that we are committed to protecting your best interests throughout the entire process. While you aren’t required to have a lawyer to file a workers’ compensation claim, you can be sure the employer’s insurance carrier has attorneys working for it. Insurance companies deny your claims, leaving you struggling to pay your bills.
Insurance Companies Are Not On Your Side, But We Are
Many insurance companies will try to poke holes in your case, using incomplete medical forms or legal technicalities to refuse paying for your treatment or to reduce your monetary payments. If they have an attorney, why not hire someone who will fight for you? Having an attorney can prevent the insurance company from attempting to take advantage of you!
We stand up for our clients, because we know this is a difficult time in their lives. Our attorneys will help you take the next steps, whether that means appearing on your behalf in hearings or appealing the decisions of the Workers’ Compensation Board.
We Only Collect If You Do
Consultations are free, where you can sit down to discuss your accident and injuries with a knowledgeable attorney. We charge no upfront fee to discuss your case, and our attorney’s payment is decided by a workers’ compensation judge after he represents you in court. You will never get a bill from our office.
