Workers Compensation in Maine
If you've been injured on the job or developed an occupational disease, a Maine workers' compensation attorney can help you in several ways. Your lawyer can assist with filing your claim for compensation, appeal your claim if it's initially denied and ensure that you get the full compensation you deserve.
Things to Know Before Hiring Workers' Compensation Attorneys
Here are some important things to know before hiring a worker comp lawyer:
- Notify your employer as soon as possible after you're injured or get diagnosed with an occupational illness. If you wait more than 90 days to notify your employer, you may lose your right to workers' compensation benefits.
- Under workers' compensation law in Maine, you may be entitled to money to pay for medical treatment, temporary or permanent disability, vocational rehabilitation, lost wages and other injury-related expenses.
- You're not legally required to use a Maine workers' comp attorney, but it's strongly recommended. Particularly if you are appealing a decision, you should assume that your employer will be represented by lawyers.
- Under Maine workers' comp law, your attorney will be paid a percentage of any money collected on your behalf. These fees are typically calculated on a sliding scale.
