If you have found yourself an unfortunate sufferer of a work place related injury, you'll want to contact a workers compensation lawyer as soon as possible. Getting hurt on the job brings you more head aches, gets you swamped with letters, appointments, tests, phone calls, doctors appointments and stress. When you're hurt and you need to be healing, your employers and insurance companies come calling, and they will hound you until you give in. By getting in contact with a helpful workers comp lawyer, you can take care of at least half of your headaches; leaving you with at least some time to rest when you need to the most.
Being injured means that you'll need most of your spare time to see a doctor when you are resting and trying to keep your home together. It also means that you'll need that compensation instantly, if you're going to be able to cover your expenses while you cannot work. Going through L&I is great and helpful, but it certainly doesn't get you any compensation when you need it the most. The lawyer-less way is the long hard way when it comes to getting your comp.
A valuable lawyer can take the time to make sure that you don't have to wait, that you aren't ignored by the clerks or insurance agents, and that you have money when you need it the most. They can ensure you don't lose out anymore than you already have.
