The aftermath of a work injury can be overwhelming. While you are struggling to recover from your injury and make ends meet, workers' compensation insurance companies will often find ways to delay processing your claim. They will often deny benefits that you need to cover medical bills and time lost at work. It is important that you have skilled representation on your side.

Protecting Your Rights After A Workplace Injury

Sometimes, your employer may try to intimidate you into not filing a workers' comp claim, or your employer may try to force you to return to work before you are physically ready. We can put employers on notice and let them know they are financially and legally liable for retaliatory acts directed toward employees who are exercising their legal rights.

In addition, workers' compensation insurance may attempt to deny your claim on a technicality or for lack of medical documentation. It is not uncommon for people to simply give up after a denied claim.

With your health on the line, we are committed to helping you recover the workers' compensation benefits you need to cover medical treatment and make the fullest recovery possible. We can also help you explore any other disability benefits available to you.
