Clearlake Workers’ Compensation Lawyers
By nature, it seems that people are inherently optimistic. After all, when you get out of bed and go to work each day you do so with the expectation that everything will go according to plan and that you will not become the victim of a workplace accident or illness. But in 2007, more than 72,000 Iowans suffered nonfatal injuries in the workplace due to an accident or ongoing physical circumstances of employment. That means that on the average day, more than 197 workers saw their expectations of a safe workday shattered.
Fortunately, most employers are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance so that they can cover the costs of an injured employee’s medical bills and other considerations. As you may have discovered, however, the insurance companies who issue these policies are often reluctant to administer the benefits to which a worker is entitled.
Having a skilled and experienced legal representative in your corner can help to change their minds. Contact the Clearlake workers’ compensation lawyers of LaMarca & Landry, P.C. at 877-327-2600 if you have come up against a frustrating or uncooperative insurance company.
Fair Compensation for Injured Workers
Our team of three-dozen knowledgeable and experienced legal professionals – including attorneys, investigators, accountants, and other support staff – understands that you simply want the compensation that you are due. The medical bills and lost wages that your injury or occupational illness might incur can easily amount to enough to financially cripple the average family. That is why it is imperative that you gain the resources that your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance is intended to provide.
Because the insurance companies and your employer would both rather deny your claim than simply accept their obligation, it can be a challenge to overcome their objections on your own. Even the slightest misstep in the completion of pertinent paperwork or compliance with statutorily established timelines can have severe adverse effects on your claim. Working closely with an attorney can help to minimize the likelihood of such errors.
You are trying to do the right thing, and though your employer or its insurer may not, we certainly will.
