Working closely with you on a one-to-one basis - our attorneys can help you navigate the system in numerous ways. These include:
- Ensuring your short-term benefits are activated while the workers' compensation application is being processed
- Guiding you through the application process
- Helping you find appropriate medical treatment
- Monitoring your treatment's progress
- Preparing, reviewing, and collecting necessary evidence
- Avoiding complications and delays by making certain proper documentation, medical records, and any other information required by your employer's insurer are in order
Can you file a personal injury lawsuit in addition
to making a claim for workers' compensation benefits?
Sometimes an on-the-job injury is caused by a defective piece of equipment, or by a private contractor or non co-worker present at your place of employment. Even though you may still be entitled to workers' compensation from your employer in these cases, your injuries may also involve costs in excess of what workers' compensation will pay for. If this situation applies to you, our personal injury lawyers will strenuously pursue damages from those responsible in addition to filing a claim for your workman's comp benefits.
Yes, You Can Afford a Lawyer...
State law regulates attorneys' fees in workers compensation cases. A maximum of 20 percent of any award or settlement can be charged to a client, with a portion of that fee to be paid by the employer.
