Legal Guidance From A Workers’ Compensation Certified Specialist
Workers’ compensation is a century-old bargain between employees and employers. In exchange for giving up your right to file a lawsuit, you are entered into an insurance program to help you in the event you are injured on the job.
Unfortunately, this “grand bargain” has eroded over the years. Employers and insurers are continually trying to minimize the amount they pay out in workers’ compensation. This has led to many deserving injured workers being denied benefits or unable to get the medical treatment they need.
We Can Help. Here’s How.
Our lawyers will provide you with legal advice about all aspects of your workers’ compensation claim. We will inform you about your rights, such as your right to get benefits for pre-existing conditions, as well as the duties of your employer and its insurance carrier in handling your claim. In addition, we will:
- Ensure that you are receiving the maximum amount of wage loss benefits to which you are entitled
- Help you obtain the medical treatment that you need
- Make sure that your employer is treating you fairly
- Appeal your denied claim if necessary
