Do I really need to hire workers compensation lawyers in Utah?
The insurance company would love for you to represent your own case. That’s because the insurance industry is all about protecting their bottom line, and to do that they employ fierce lawyers of their own. Protect yourself from their bullying tactics with a workers comp lawyer.
But do I have a case?
If you were hurt at work or hurt while performing duties directly related to your work, then you may have a workers compensation case. However, the only way to know for sure is to schedule a free consultation with an experienced workers comp attorney.
Am I classified as an employee or an independent contractor?
One of the factors that affects your workers comp case is whether you are classified as an independent contractor or an employee. Your status depends on certain factors like length of employment, how you’re paid, and how your employer sets your hours.
I don’t want to go to court. Will I have to?
Workers compensation cases won’t necessarily go to court. In fact, most are settled out of court. In a majority of cases, our attorneys are able to reach an agreement with the insurance company—but if not, we’re ready to fight for you in court.
Always visit your own, trusted doctor for your health examination after your injury. These employer mandated “independent” health examinations are usually far from independent, and used to minimize your injuries in the eyes of the law.
In Utah, you must report workplace related injuries within 180 days of occurring. However, we highly suggest reporting injuries ASAP—preferably the day that they occur. Remember, insurance companies will look for any reason to deny your claim.
It’s hard to estimate how much your injury is worth, especially at the beginning of the claims process. As we begin to develop your case, your attorney will be able to give you a better idea of how much of a payout you could receive. Searching for a Utah workers compensation attorney? Utah Legal Team can help.
What if I don’t feel like I’m hurt?
After a workplace accident, your employer may persuade you not to file a claim—especially if you don’t feel hurt. However, pain may not fully manifest until well after your injury, so be sure to file a claim and seek medical attention regardless.
