Should I Hire an Attorney for My Rhode Island Worker’s Compensation Claim? 

If you suspect you have a Rhode Island worker’s compensation claim, it is in your best interest to hire an attorney. Worker’s comp claims that result in serious injuries become complicated quickly. Hiring an experienced legal team, such as the Bottaro Law Firm, is the only way to ensure you will receive maximum compensation for your Rhode Island worker’s comp claim.

 

When is the Right Time to Hire A Worker’s Compensation Lawyer? 

If you are injured within the “course and scope” of your job – you should immediately contact us for a free confidential consultation!

 You will need help getting medical treatment and ensuring the bills are paid the right way and not held up to collections. Rhode Island’s “no-fault” insurance system should help and we know how to use it.

Do not wait – some people mistakenly wait until a claim is denied.  This can be done improperly or because certain time-sensitive deadlines were not met – our lawyers can help avoid this problem!

 

Also, do not wait or feel that your employer may retaliate against you.  Your employer should not do this simply due to your injuries.  Watch out for cutting hours, demoting you, or even worse, firing you after a claim. If this happens, you need to call us right away. There are certain punitive damages you may be entitled to.

Rhode Island has an exclusivity rule, meaning if you accept worker’s compensation benefits, you waive your rights.

By claiming worker’s comp benefits, you accept the exclusive right and remedy against your employer.

 

You May Also Have A Second Case For Personal Injury! The Bottaro Difference

You may even have the right to extra compensation by filing third-party complaints against others other than your employer.

Remember, insurance companies are not looking out for you. Adjusters will not hesitate to reject your claim simply because they believe you will not appeal.

This is why you need to hire a dedicated workers’ compensation attorney. At the Bottaro Law Firm, we have over 20 years of experience winning worker’s comp cases.

Our legal team will gather medical evidence to supports your claim, work with adjusters on your behalf, and negotiate a proper settlement.

If you’ve been injured on the job, call me today for a free consultation.
