Facts You Should Know About Suing Your Employer

Filing a Workers' Compensation case is meant to provide you with the money you need to take care of your medical expenses. However, when companies attempt to settle, they may sometimes offer you less than you deserve. Hiring a Workers' Compensation lawyer will help you get exactly what you deserve. If you feel your company is being unfair, you can sue your employer, but there are a few things you should know first.

Be Patient and Persevere Through the Litigation Process

Due to opposition and resistance against your case, your company may draw out the litigation process for a very long time. During this time, it is unlikely that you will receive any compensation. The key thing for you here is to be patient. Find support from your friends and family while your case is moving through the court.

Do Not Rely on Your Co-Workers

Even though your co-workers may have witnessed the accident and have information that would help you win your case, your co-workers may not be willing to help your case due to the fear of losing their job. In this case, confide in your Workers’ Compensation attorney to do what is best for your case.

Your Work Record Will Be Reviewed

During the process, your company may bring out your work record to show any past indiscretions that would cause your credibility to be questioned.

Suing your employer is a difficult process that may challenge your patience and work reputation. However, ensuring that you receive your deserved compensation for the injuries you have sustained is crucial to your health and worth as an employee. Call the offices of Gaylord & Nantais today, and talk to one of their reputable Workers’ Compensation attorneys. They can help you navigate the process and find the answers you need!
