Workers’ Compensation

When You Should Retain a Workers' Compensation Attorney

In most cases, workers who have sustained a work injury of any significance should consult with a workers compensation attorney without delay. The workers compensation process is not smooth or straightforward and there are strict guidelines that must be followed.

A workers' compensation attorney can help with the following:

  • Explaining your Rights and Obligations under the Workers Compensation Law

  • Providing Legal Representation to Obtain the Benefits you may Deserve including:

    • Medical Treatment

    • Weekly Benefit Amounts for Loss Wages

    • Lump Sum Benefit Amounts for Permanent Partial Disability

    • Lump Sum or Weekly Benefit Amounts for Permanent Total Disability

    • Lump Sum or Weekly Death Benefit Amounts for Dependents

  • Handling all Communications with the Worker Compensation Insurance Company

  • Protecting your Employment Rights with your Employer

In some cases, you may be eligible to recover benefits through workers' compensation and make a personal injury claim if the injury was caused by someone else’s negligence. We often represent clients in both workers’ compensation claims and personal injury claims arising out of a work injury.

What To Do If You've Been Injured On The Job

If you've developed a job-related occupational disease or have been injured while at work, notify your employer in writing as soon as possible. If you wait too long, your ability to receive benefits may be denied. Promptly seek medical treatment for your injury and let the physician know that your injury occurred on the job. Don’t hesitate in calling us for a free phone or office consultation so we can help assure you understand your rights and obligations and obtain the workers' compensation benefits you're entitled to.
