Workplace Accident & Injury Claims in Warwick
In Rhode Island, a worker’s legal fees are almost always paid by the workers’ comp insurance company. When an injured worker seeks legal counsel and is awarded benefits, legal fees are awarded separately and do not decrease the amount of workers’ compensation benefits the worker receives. This makes it all the more important to involve an attorney. You have everything to gain and nothing to lose in working with an experienced Warwick workers’ compensation lawyer.
There are many tricks and traps that injured people fall victim to in their workers’ compensation cases. Many employers still have not accepted legal responsibility for your injury even when you are receiving weekly checks and think everything is being done correctly.
