Spinal Cord Injury Claims
Understanding Spinal Cord Injuries
A spinal cord injury can be a life-altering event. It can cause paralysis, loss of sensation, and other serious medical conditions. If you have suffered a spinal cord injury while on the job, you may be entitled to compensation.
Working with an Experienced Spinal Cord Injury Attorney
At Robin J. Peterson Company, we have years of experience helping clients with spinal cord injuries get the compensation they deserve. We understand the complexities of workers’ compensation laws and can help you navigate the system to get the best possible outcome for your case.
A spinal cord injury attorney can provide various services to help workers navigate the complexities of making a workers' compensation claim. These services include:
Initial Consultation: The attorney provides an initial consultation to understand the specifics of the case, educate the worker about their rights, and discuss potential strategies.
Claim Preparation: They assist in preparing and filing the workers' compensation claim, ensuring all necessary medical documentation and incident reports are included for a strong case.
Negotiation with Insurance Companies: The lawyer negotiates with insurance companies on behalf of the client, aiming to secure the maximum benefits possible under the law.
Legal Representation: If the claim is denied, the attorney represents the client in hearings or appeals before the workers' compensation board, presenting the case and arguing for the client's rights.
Medical and Vocational Experts Consultation: They may consult with medical and vocational experts to substantiate the extent of the injury, its impact on the worker's ability to work, and the need for ongoing medical care or vocational rehabilitation.
Settlement Negotiation: If a settlement is offered, the attorney reviews it to ensure it adequately covers current and future medical expenses, lost wages, and other damages. They can negotiate for a higher settlement if necessary.
Litigation: If a fair agreement cannot be reached, the attorney prepares and presents the case for trial in court to fight for the compensation the client deserves.
Continuous Legal Advice: Throughout the process, the attorney provides legal advice and updates to the client about the progress of their claim.
Protection of Client's Rights: The attorney ensures that the client's rights are protected throughout the process, and that they are treated fairly by their employer, the insurance company, and the workers' compensation board.
