I get it- no one wants to hire a lawyer. But sometimes you just have to. One of the most common situations we see is employees who come to us after they get seriously hurt and try to manage their comp cases on their own, then realize they're in over their heads. They can't get the insurance rep to call them back to get weekly checks or specialist referrals or prescriptions filled, and they don't know their rights or what benefits they qualify for.
We hear the same thing from these confused, frustrated, worried souls, stated in different ways: "I just thought they'd take care of me. I've been a good employee."
And many times, they're shocked to discover it's not the employer behind it- it's the workers comp insurance company that just won't help. The employer's out of the loop. That leaves an injured, inexperienced employee to take on a massive insurance company filled with veteran claims reps who help the company profit by shortchanging injured employees.
And that's why you need a lawyer. In this brief video, Spartanburg, South Carolina workers' comp attorney Rob Usry reveals the major reason you need an attorney.
Here's a question we get sometimes: “if I'm seriously hurt at work do I really need a workers comp attorney?” Sadly there's a lot of reasons why you do and you can read about them on my website but here's your biggest problem. You’re an injured amateur facing a mammoth insurance company loaded with professionals. They make money by cheating you and they have lawyers, too. Settlement benefits can be extremely complicated and we're talking about vital rights like future medical care and extra compensation for permanent injury. If you don't know your settlement options you can cheat yourself and your family out of benefits you really need. Do you really know your settlement options? Do you really know what you've got to prove? Do you really know how to prove it? That’s why you need professional help.
I've developed a system designed to streamline the process and maximize your potential settlement. If you've got questions about your workers comp case fill out a get help now form or just call my office. You'll get your questions answered and on the road to peace of mind which is priceless. I thank you for thinking about this with me and I hope I see you soon
