From start to finish, you’ll have a committed and tenacious workers’ comp law firm pursuing compensation for the following losses:

  • Lost wages and benefits: After you’ve been hurt on the job, you may be unable to work and earn an income over the following weeks, months, or even years. If you’re the primary financial support in your household, this can be incredibly difficult to endure. Compensation can cover lost wages that you would have received (both past and future) had you not suffered harm.
  • Pain and suffering: Workers’ compensation claims can factor in pain and suffering, which is a common term for emotional trauma. Compensation for pain and suffering may consider the impact physical trauma has on your quality of life. However, most cases involving non-economic compensation rely on your litigation team’s ability to position your case favorably and use your evidence to detail your losses fully.
  • Medical bills: Factoring your medical bills allows you to recover compensation for many of your economic losses. For instance, your medical bills can include costs associated with doctor visits, hospital stays, prescription medicine, at-home care, special medical equipment, and ongoing care. These losses are easier to figure out because you have proof regarding how much you spent.
  • Physical rehabilitation: You may have physical therapy and rehabilitation as part of your treatment plan. If you have to pay for any of the costs associated with therapy, you can pursue these damages as part of your claim.

Workers’ compensation claims can last for years, so insurance companies may try to find any way possible to deny your claim.

While you may think that you can navigate the entire process on your own, you can encounter some issues that impact how much you can recover and if insurance companies will pay you for your losses.

Our expert legal staff can help with the following:

  • Building out a strong claim with accurate information and done in a timely manner.

Our dedicated litigation team can help prevent this from happening, ensuring you include all accurate and relevant information regarding your incident.
  • Navigating the process of your settlement, as well as managing the negotiations to pursue the maximum amount available to you. Insurance companies will try to offer you whatever they think you’ll take, and if they can convince you it’s enough to cover your losses, they save money. Our firm works with your best interests in mind and negotiates on your behalf to maximize the value of your claim.
  • Handling outside legal matters that may arise in the event your employer doesn’t provide workers’ compensation insurance or your injury is the result of third-party negligence. you may need to pursue compensation through other means, and you can get the proper help from an attorney that knows the laws inside and out.
