Hearings are necessary in most workers’ compensation claims in order to obtain additional medical treatment or money for lost wages. This can be an involved process that can require completion of legal forms, review of extensive medical reports, testimony from witnesses, deposition of doctors and at times your testimony before a workers’ compensation law judge. At the Law Office of Frank A. Cetero, our attorneys know the tactics that insurance carriers use in attempting to save money and to deny you benefits. Insurance carriers have attorneys who are paid to deny your claim. Insurance carriers have lawyers on their side; you should hire one to fight for you. Our lawyers have more than 50 years of combined experience helping injured workers. We know the ins and outs of filing a well-documented claim, obtaining medical evidence, completing forms, and requesting doctor’s reports that are all necessary for you to obtain medical treatment and lost wages. Our attorneys have extensive hearing and courtroom experience to help prepare you for multiple hearings that may occur over the course of your workers’ compensation claim.
Standing Up For You Against Employers And Their Insurers
Workers’ compensation claims are complex, and while you aren’t required to have an attorney, statistics show that workers’ compensation claims that are handled with the assistance of an attorney provide increased authorization of medical benefits and lost wages. If you attempt to handle these on your own, you could make major mistakes that threaten the potential long-term success of your case.
Money shouldn’t be an issue. Consultations are free, where you can sit down to discuss your accident and injuries with a knowledgeable attorney.
