Advocacy

What is an advocate?

An advocate is a third party who works one on one with an employee and helps navigate the employee through the workers compensation system. Many times an employee will tell a third party things they aren't comfortable sharing with their employer. An advocate is neutral party that their whole purpose and goal is to make sure the employee feels safe, comfortable and knowing their concerns are being heard. Many times, advocates are bi-lingual and that helps ensure there isn’t miscommunication between the employee and employer.

Why have an advocate?

An advocate is a huge game changer and when engaged with an injured worker. The chances of the injured employee hiring an attorney are decreased by 95% or more. Which is why an advocate is a truly valuable role.
