Nurses in Danger: Series Conclusion
It Sounds Too Good To Be True… But Maybe It’s Not
Megan appreciated Amy’s advice, but didn’t know if she had enough in her savings account to afford an attorney. Amy chimed in and told her that she worried about that as well, but found that workers’ comp attorneys don’t charge upfront. They are paid a capped percentage of the benefits a client is awarded, and a state agency must sign off on the fee before a lawyer gets paid. So, she told Megan, you’re able to get a lawyer to help you with all of the complicated workers’ comp requirements without destroying your budget or your savings.
After Megan and Amy caught up on other things going on in their lives, the call ended. Megan thought for a few minutes about the things she and Amy talked about, then decided to start researching workers’ compensation lawyers. After two hours of research, she found a Denver area firm that she thought would be a good fit. She saw on its website that it even had a blog series about nurses who suffered injuries just like hers!
A Decision That Leads To Relief
Megan decided it was time. She called the number and when a voice came on the other end of the phone and said “Law office, how may I help you?,” Megan felt like a small weight had been lifted from her shoulders, and she knew that everything was going to be fine.
