Definition of Applicants Attorney
Applicants' attorney is the attorney who represents an injured worker in a workers compensation case. Workers' compensation may seem like a fairly simple matter. You get injured on the job or acquire an occupational disease and you apply for workers' compensation benefits. You would think that's all there is to it. It's cut and dried. You start receiving your benefits. However workers' compensation, in many instances, can be confusing, filled with red tape and complicated. Because this is so often the case, it is wise to have a workers' compensation attorney on your side.
In addition to this, many employers try to keep you from filing a workers' compensation claim or threaten you if you do. Your employer may try and tell you that your injury is not covered by workers' compensation. Workers' compensation insurance companies are also guilty of denying valid workers' compensation claims, delaying your reception of benefits and keeping you from getting all of the benefits that you are entitled to. For all of these reasons, in many cases, you need a workers' compensation attorney fighting for you.
