You’ve been injured on the job and may be wondering what you need to do now? If you are, don’t worry because you have access to an attorney who is willing to stand by your side and help you file a workers’ compensation claim.
When you call the Walz Law Office, you will sense the necessary urgency toward starting work on your case so that a solid claim can be put together for you. It is important that your claim is perfect so that no reasons can be found to deny your claim. Unfortunately, there can be many “holes” in a case that causes there to be questions that you may not immediately have answers for. This can result in an automatic denial. Your attorney can change this, though.
Proving Your Injury
You do have the burden of proof in the case, which means you have to prove that your injury occurred on the job. It is possible that your employer could say that the injury did not occur. This means that there needs to be witness statements to prove your claim. Then again, there could be surveillance video of the accident and this is something that is good to have as well. The employer cannot deny the accident if it is on tape.
In addition to proving that the accident occurred, doctor statements show how severe the injuries are. The doctor can state approximately how long it will take to return to work. The insurance company’s doctor is going to give their assessment, but you have the right to show documents from your own doctor so that you have multiple opinions being shown. This can work in your benefit. With your Sauk Centre workers’ compensation Attorney by your side, you are increasing your chance of approval.
Streamlining The Claims Process
At the Walz Law Office, we streamline the claims process for you. It is very important that the process is done to perfection. This can be difficult to do on your own when you are dealing with the stress that has been caused by the injury. It can be difficult to remember some of the details surrounding the accident and that can make it hard to file the claim. It is even possible for a person to be too unwell to file their claim and this means having a relative file for you. This can create problems, so it is a must to have a Sauk Centre workers’ compensation attorney investigate the details surrounding the injury so that the claim can be filed properly.
