Most seek an attorney when their claims are denied or are receiving improper treatment for their injury. Some of the other reasons that you may choose to work with a lawyer include:
•The injury happened at work, but a third-party vendor rather than your employer is responsible.
•A defective product caused your injury, making you potentially eligible to file a claim for product liability against its manufacturer.
•You’re the victim of toxic exposure such as asbestos.
•Your employer knowingly violated the law and required employees to work in unsafe conditions.
•You work for a very small employer that doesn’t carry workers’ compensation insurance.
