Workers Compensation: Your Safety Net

You put your heart and soul into your job, so it seems only fair that you should be protected from harm while you’re there. Most good employers do go out of their way to provide safety training and equipment to keep their workers safe and protected from any hazards. Federal agencies, like the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, also have standards in place for employers to follow to keep their workers safe. However, sometimes accidents happen anyway, and when they do, workers compensation is meant to be your safety net. Most of the time, if you follow your company’s procedures for filing a workers compensation claim, you’ll be paid with no trouble. However, I know from experience that it isn’t always that easy. I started this blog to help you learn what to do when your company or their insurance company denies your workers compensation claim.

3 Ways In Which An Attorney Can Help You With Your Divorce Proceedings

Dealing with a divorce can be one of the most incredibly difficult experiences in your life. One of the ways to make that experience a bit more tolerable is to use the services of a divorce or family law attorney. Throughout the course of this brief article, you will learn of just a few ways in which an attorney can help you deal with your divorce proceedings.

Deadlines and Delays

Dealing with documentation can be one of the most difficult parts of going through a divorce proceeding. "Legalese" can be a difficult language to parse. Divorce and family law attorneys are trained to deal with this difficult language. Many of these documents are time sensitive, as well. An attorney can help you fill out these documents in a timely manner such that you do not miss any deadlines involved. Often times, delays will have to be made if you do not submit the documentation by its due date. This can slow down the process of finalizing your divorce.


Going through a divorce can be a confusing experience. If you do not hire the services of an attorney, this experience can be made that much more confusing. An attorney is trained in how to advise you given the contingencies of your situation. With just a bit of research, such an attorney can easily determine to what assets you entitled throughout the divorce proceedings. An attorney can also advise you on how to ensure that you are able to keep the property to which you believe you are entitled.

How To Avoid Mistakes

Due to the confusion that you may experience during a divorce proceeding, you may make a mistake or two. The services of a divorce or family law attorney will ensure that you do not make these mistakes. The stress that you will experience can be immense during a divorce, and an attorney is there to make sure that this stress and confusion does not cloud your judgment. A divorce attorney can look through any documentation that you are set to submit to make sure that you do not make any untrue or exaggerated claims and will speak on your behalf as your advocate, so that you do not say anything that you do not mean or say something that will remain legally binding.

Hopefully, this brief guide has given you some idea of why hiring a divorce or family law attorney for the services of a divorce proceeding is a prudent idea. Contact a law firm, such as Baudler, Maus, Forman, Kritzer & Wagner, LLP, for more information.
