It is essential that an injured worker retain an attorney who concentrates in workers' compensation law to protect one's rights and assure the maximum recovery under the law. Immediately after incurring an injury at work, a worker is involved in a legal claim under the workers' compensation act. Every employer or its insurance company has a competent staff of attorneys representing their interests. Your employer or its insurance company has no obligation to inform a worker of their rights under the workers' compensation law. A workers' compensation claim involves not only compensation for an injury, it also has provisions which can protect a worker if he or she is unable to engage in their usual occupation as a result of a work-related injury. An injured worker is NOT SUING THEIR EMPLOYER if he/she pursues their workers' compensation claim.
