After I suffer a work injury at work, when should I call an attorney?

At Mays Law Office, Attorney Lisa Pierobon Mays is happy to talk to you at any time during the workers compensation process. However, there are crucial moments when you absolutely need to talk to us, such as:

  • Call an attorney if the employer refuses to believe that you were injured at work or refuses to file the accident claim with their workers compensation carrier;
  • Call an attorney if the employer fires you for reporting a work injury;
  • Call an attorney if two weeks passes after your work injury and you have received no benefits for either lost time from work or payment of your medical bills;
  • Call an attorney before going to any doctor appointment set up by the workers compensation carrier, especially if they claim it is an “Independent Medical Examination.” This is false and nothing about it is “independent” or fair.
  • Call an attorney if the workers compensation doctor disagrees with your doctor and the insurance company stops paying for your medical treatment or tells you to not follow the advice of your own doctor;
  • Call an attorney if you cannot work and now the workers compensation carrier is not paying you a lost time benefit;
  • Call an attorney if the workers compensation carrier wants you to sign a document in exchange for a money settlement;
  • Call an attorney if you have physical restrictions and can do some level of work but the employer refuses to allow you back and now the workers compensation carrier is not paying you a lost time benefit;
  • Call an attorney if your injury is so severe that you have concerns that you will never be well enough to return to the same type of employment.
