Injured On The Job?
We can help you get the money you deserve.
Long ago, lawmakers, workers and employers struck a deal to allow injured workers the right to compensation in exchange for employer immunity from certain kinds of damages. Workers’ compensation laws are meant to help both workers and employers resolve injury situations more efficiently. Unfortunately, that does not mean that you should expect to be treated fairly if you are injured on the job. If you have suffered a significant injury while performing work-related duties, you need to speak to an experienced lawyer to make sure your rights are protected.

Workplace Injuries and Insurance Companies
If the system works correctly, you should be able to collect benefits from your employer and insurance carrier in the event of an injury or accident while performing work-related duties. In reality, getting workers’ compensation benefits is typically more difficult than simply filing a claim. You may have your claim denied or receive less than you deserve. The reason for this is that the insurance company and its adjustors are not on your side. They do not care about your injuries or how they affect you and your family. Their concern is keeping costs down by limiting the compensation you receive.
In many cases, the only way to get full compensation for a workplace injury is to work with an experienced lawyer. Our firm has handled countless workers’ comp claims, including:
- Head, neck and back injuries
- Burn injuries
- Broken bones
- Lost limbs and amputation injuries
- Knee and joint injuries
- Lacerations and crush injuries
Denied Claims and Appeals
Suffering a work-related injury does not guarantee that you will receive workers’ comp. Valid claims may be denied for a variety of reasons, some legitimate and some not. Our aggressive, experienced workers’ compensation attorneys can help you get the money you have coming to you.
