When a worker is injured on the job and covered by workmen’s compensation insurance, the individual must follow the sometimes overwhelming procedures in order to receive compensation. If that compensation is denied, a legal action can ensue.
A paralegal can be an invaluable asset in both the procedural and representative process. Workmen’s compensation law is basically a form of administrative representation, but it has become so specialized and document intensive that paralegals are now a major component of the process. As a workmen’s compensation paralegal, you will need strong people skills. You will be dealing with sick or injured individuals who are relying on you to a great degree for their benefits. Being able to keep track of documents is also desired in this area of practice.
