If you work in the production industry, transport, packaging, mechanical, or construction industry, you are at a greater risk of being involved in a serious accident that can lead to amputation of your hand or leg.
A lot can change in your life including limited mobility, loss of income, and employers might no longer hire you. Since your life has to continue, you need to start the process of hiring an attorney to help you get compensation.
Help with investigations
Your employer might be the one who failed to do due diligence on taking measures to prevent work-related injuries. When your employer realizes he’s the one to blame, he might want to pass all the blame to you and escape court battles and compensation.
Hiring an LB employment lawyer will help you conduct in-depth investigations on the cause of injury and establish who is to blame for the injury or accident that resulted in your amputation.
You need more power to negotiate compensation
After your injury and amputation, you immediately get the right to be compensated by your employer or worker’s compensation insurance. A court of law can decide on the amount of compensation good for you. Your employer can also decide to engage you in negotiation and seek to make the process favor him. Hiring a workers compensation lawyer in Long Beach will give you a greater advantage against your employer because your lawyer knows every item you should be included in the negotiation.
Your case can proceed to court
You can feel you didn’t get a fair deal from your employer or the insurance and instead of accepting the offer, you decide to proceed to court and seek a better deal. Your employer will not wait to receive a court ruling and pay you, but he will hire a lawyer to defend him in court.
Since you are not experienced in matters of law, you need someone with experience in law to help you. You will get a better chance to win the case if you hire an accident lawyer Long Beach to defend you in court. The lawyer will also help you advise the court on the best amount of compensation worth your level of injury and loss.
The workers’ compensation insurance might fail to pay
The workers’ compensation insurance might do their investigations and decide you are not eligible for compensation. You can lose your right to compensation and fail to get money to help you start your life afresh or continue with post-amputation therapy. Your personal injury attorney Long Beach can help reverse the decision and you get your full compensation according to law.
