On-the-job accidents happen often and in all kinds of work situations, including offices and construction sites. Most Alaska employers anticipate the possibility of accidents by providing workers’ compensation insurance to protect their employees.
When Should You Hire a Workers' Compensation Attorney?
In the event of a workplace injury, many people assume that securing workers’ compensation will be relatively straightforward. They like and trust their employer and think that navigating their workers’ compensation claim will be easy. Unfortunately, the true power to grant or deny benefits is in the hands of the insurance company, not the employer or employee.
Sometimes people are quite satisfied with the outcome of their workers’ compensation claim. Other times, they may need legal representation to help them navigate the red tape, put pressure on the insurance company, and get the benefits they deserve.
