After determining that you are eligible for workers’ compensation, the next step is to determine the scope of the compensation you can receive. There are several factors that affect a workers’ compensation insurance calculation. Employment status, employer, and family situation all may alter your claim. You will also need to make decisions on how and when to be compensated after the judgment has been given.
All of these questions and more become much easier to navigate with the help of the lawyer.
Why it is Important to Consult an Attorney
Your company and their Insurance company probably won’t be thrilled about a workers’ compensation claim.
