Workers' Compensation

Workers' comp is available to any individual who was injured as a result of work-related duties. Spouses and dependent family members of individuals who died while performing work-related duties may also be able to collect certain workers' compensation benefits. Although workers' comp benefits are provided by law, an employer may fight the allowance of benefits, and it can be difficult for people to determine if the settlement they have been offered is fair. The presence of an attorney experienced in work-related injuries is essential in these cases.

Am I Entitled to Workers' Compensation Benefits?

It is especially difficult when an employer is denying lost wages or medical care when the worker is recovering from a work-related accident that was not his or her fault. We have experience negotiating and litigating cases involving:

  • Lost wages for full and part-time employment
  • Medical benefits, including doctor's appointments, physical therapy, chiropractic care, prescription benefits, surgery and the like
  • Loss of function as a result of disfigurement or scarring from a work-related accident
  • Compensation for scarring from a work-related accident
  • Vocational rehabilitation and retraining
  • Payment for attorneys' fees
  • Payment for expenses incurred in traveling to and from doctor or chiropractor appointments
  • Negotiation of lump-sum settlements
  • Defense against termination or reduction of benefits

No matter what type of benefits your case qualifies for, we will thoroughly examine your individual case and circumstance. Our dedicated lawyers are strong advocates for each and every one of our injured clients.
