Why do I need a worker’s comp lawyer?

You may have a pre- existing condition whether you know it or not. When you are hurt on the job, your prior condition can be accelerated, aggravated, or may affect your healing. That’s why it’s so important to seek out the counsel  of an experienced lawyer. For a generation now, Belinda Ellison, Lawyer has been seeing to it that injured South Carolina workers and their families get the compensation they deserve. As an experienced attorney, she will take you through the whole process. She’s fully dedicated to fighting for justice.

How can pre-existing conditions affect your case? Your claim is particularly apt to be problematic if your pre-existing condition is medically similar to your workplace injury—e.g., if you already had an ankle injury and you suffered an ankle injury on the job, your claim is more likely to be denied. Even though the two circumstances have nothing to do with one another, the argument is going to be that the first incident contributed to the second one.

On the other hand, it’s also possible to have an unrelated pre-existing condition that’s legitimately exacerbated, or “aggravated,” by a workplace injury. In both cases, you’re going to need to have adequate medical documentation to prove your case, which is why going to a doctor who specifically handles on-the-job injuries is advisable. And it’s important to note that aggravated injuries generally don’t warrant the same kind of coverage as out-and-out workplace accidents do.

A seasoned accident lawyer can help you consolidate all your paperwork—and see to it that your claim is filed correctly, with no stones left unturned and no details left unaccounted for. Belinda Ellison will walk you through the entire process of submitting and understanding your claim. Moreover, she handles all cases on a contingency basis, which means that you don’t pay any attorney’s fees until you get the compensation your injuries warrant. And that’s the kind of quality guarantee you know you can count on.
