When you have been injured at work and need to file a workers’ compensation claim right away, you need an attorney who will provide you with a great deal of personal service. What this means for you is that we are not going to rush through your case, although we will also be making sure you receive your benefits as soon as possible.
It is unfortunate that many in Wright County see their claims being denied. This has much to do with the fact that employers challenge claims or there may be questions regarding the extent of a person’s injuries or if those injuries, in fact, occurred while in the job.
Proving Your Case
If there are any “gray areas” in your case, it is very important to close those areas. Your Wright County workers’ compensation lawyer will know what to do to make sure those gray areas are wiped out so that your claim is not denied just because there are a lot of questions. For instance, you may have a pre-existing condition that has been aggravated by your job duties. When that’s the case, it could be argued that your job did not play a factor. You have to prove that there is a connection between the worsening of your condition and your job.
Then there are times when employers argue that the employee was not performing their duties when they were injured. This is something that must be corroborated by witnesses. If an employer never said “do not do that,” then they may not be able to argue that doing a task outside of the assigned job duties constitutes a denial for workers’ compensation. By simply proving what happened, you can receive your benefits.
