Question: Isn’t the Point of the Workers’ Compensation System to Avoid Hiring a RI Workers’ Compensation Attorney?
Yes, the system was designed to help the injured worker heal and get back to work as quickly as possible. This goal is fostered through the provision of financial support and medical help to the injured worker, as soon as possible.
Question: Why Should I Hire a Workers Compensation Attorney?
Good question. Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation system doesn’t always work as designed.
We help injured workers, who aren’t receiving appropriate medical care and payments, who are being forced back to work to soon, and who are suffering beyond the scope of workers’ compensation laws.
Question: Do You Mean I Should Sue My Employer?
Not necessarily. Sometimes, we just help injured workers have more time to recover or get the payments they deserve.
In other cases, a worker was injured because of a dangerous situation in a hazardous workplace or from a defective product. In those cases, it may be appropriate to sue to get the financial compensation you deserve. We’ll explain your rights and you make the decision of how to proceed.
