If you have gone through the misfortune of a workplace accident, you might find yourself feeling upset and powerless. However, this should not be the case. It is your employer’s job to make sure that the work premises are safe, and if the accident resulted because of a possible oversight or neglect on your employer’s part, then you deserve to be compensated for the damage caused to you, be it physical or psychological. If you think your employer is not acknowledging the gravity of the situation or if you believe you are not being compensated fairly, you can look into injury lawyers from Phillips Injury Attorneys of Chicago as a potential option.
The point of having a personal injury lawyer by your side is so that you can avoid the likelihood of your employer or the insurance company low-balling you or denying you your right to a compensation.
Your lawyer will go over all of the facts of the case with you, talk to doctors and witnesses that might be involved, and then give you an estimate for much you can be entitled to as compensation.
Having a lawyer by your side during negotiations is important because they will be sure to advocate for you, and they know your legal rights, so the other partys lawyer cannot intimidate you into agreeing to a smaller amount. Plus, if the case were to go to court, your lawyer will already be upto date with all of the facts of the case, so they will already have all of the evidence they need and will then continue focusing on gathering additional evidence and testimonies to make sure that you end up having your day in court and that you walk out of the court proceedings feeling like justice has been served.
