Pros and Cons of Hiring A Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Workers’ compensation is intended to help compensate workers and their families in the event of a workplace accident or illness. This compensation covers the medical expenses associated with the accident, as well as any loss wages due to the accident. In severe cases, a worker may be wrongfully killed on the job. In these situations, the family of the deceased worker can recover compensation for their loss. While compensation can never make up for the loss of a loved one, compensation can help lift the burden of expenses surrounding one’s wrongful death

If you or a loved one has been injured at work, you should hire an experienced workers’ compensation attorney at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. Our attorneys can help you navigate the legal process, and will work tirelessly to get the maximum compensation available for you. Call 617-225-2100 for a free consultation today. 

The Pros of Hiring a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer 


Your attorney will make sure all the necessary paperwork regarding your case is filed properly and on time. Late and inaccurately filed claims can be denied, and an attorney can ensure your claim will not be denied due to common paperwork errors. 

Higher Chance of Success 

The assistance of a workers’ compensation attorney often increases your chances of a successful claim. An attorney understands the legal process, and they work to increase your compensation as much as possible. An attorney will inform you of your rights, and will guide you through the entire legal process. 

Appealing a Denied Claim 

In the event that your workers’ compensation claim is denied, an attorney can handle the appeal of your claim. Injured workers have a higher chance at a successful appeal with the assistance of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. The appeals process is tricky, and involves a variety of steps that your attorney can ensure are done properly. The attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. have over 38 years of experience in workers’ compensation law, and can help ensure you get the compensation you deserve. 

Equal Representation 

Your workers’ compensation attorney has the ability to properly handle any discussions with insurance companies. Insurance companies often have an experienced legal team that is working to give you the least amount of money possible. Having an experienced professional on your side will ensure that you have the ability to properly legally dispute any workers’ compensation issues. 

Focus on Your Health 

These claims are time consuming and require the necessary evidence in order to prove you deserve compensation. Workers’ compensation adjusters often do not respond to emails or phone calls, and an attorney at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. can ensure that these adjusters are staying in contact with us through filing penalties or sanctions against the at fault party. Your attorney will take care of the legal work so that you can focus on healing from your injury or illness. 

Fighting For Your Claim 

Insurance companies will try to manipulate injured workers that are not represented by an attorney. Insurers have a number of tactics that can damage your claim for workers’ compensation. Practices such as manipulating you into signing Form 105 are used in order to deny you compensation. A workers’ compensation attorney can prevent these situations, and to ensure that you have the best chance at receiving compensation. 

When you have the representation of a workers’ compensation attorney, insurance adjusters will be less likely to dispute your claim in hopes to avoid legal disputes. Additionally, workers’ compensation judges prefer working with experienced attorneys, increasing your chances of success. 

The Cons of Hiring a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer 

Time Commitment

Any relevant hearings or legal meetings would need to occur when both you and your attorney are available. While this may increase the time it takes for your claim to be resolved, the attorneys at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. will promptly work to try to resolve your claim. An attorney will cover any negotiations or conversations. With an attorney’s assistance, you would only need to spend a minimum time working to resolve the dispute, as your attorney can handle most of the issues for you. 

Success is not Guaranteed 

Although hiring an experienced workers’ compensation attorney increases your chance of success, hiring an attorney does not guarantee the success of your claim. Complex cases will require more time to be resolved, but the lawyers at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. have a track record of successful workers’ compensation cases. Hiring an experienced attorney gives your case the highest chance of success, and often increases the amount of compensation you can receive. 

Unhappy Employer 

In some instances, hiring an attorney can negatively impact your relationship with your employer. Employers may react negatively to the news that you have legal representation, but any negative treatment towards you for this reason is discrimination. If you are facing workplace discrimination, contact an attorney at Bellotti Law Group, P.C. immediately to discuss your rights.
