Having a workers' compensation attorney on your side for your claim may have several advantages. Ideally, you should contact a workers' compensation attorney as soon as a job accident occurs. According to the legislation, you have 120 days from the date of the accident to notify your employer of the injury. You might not be eligible to receive workers' compensation payments until the day you provide notice if you don't submit a notice of your job accident within the allotted 21 days. If you don't do this within the allotted 120 days, you won't be able to receive any advantages.

It's crucial to keep in mind that there are a number of dates you need to be aware of in order to submit a workers' compensation claim. Many of these dates pertain to specific documentation, and if you don't file it by the deadline, it can potentially affect your benefits.

The goal of insurance adjusters is to offer injured workers the lowest compensation possible.
