Serving Injured Workers

Most often, those filing for workers' compensation will encounter one or more of the following obstacles to their claims:

  • Employer believes that the injury occurred outside the workplace — This is one way that many companies try to avoid paying workers' compensation. Even if your condition was pre-existing, we can help you prove that it was aggravated by an accident on the job.
  • Financial benefits were inaccurately calculated We find that the employer often fails to properly calculate the injured workers' earnings and wages. This can lead to an unfairly low wage loss payment.
  • The injury was inaccurately or partially described — This can result in a denial of medical bill payment or an inability to recover for that injury in the future. An insurer may terminate your benefits because the injuries you are being treated for were not included on your claim.

Sometimes, you are hurt so severely that you cannot return to work at your former employment. In this instance, our work injury claim attorneys can refer you to the office of vocational rehabilitation where you will be retrained for a new position. We will also evaluate your eligibility for Social Security Disability.
