Worker’s Compensation insurance is designed to provide six basic benefits:

Your company’s claims administrator may not agree with your claims and even your doctors report.

This could include:
☛ Whether or not your injury was caused by your work.
☛ Whether or not you need treatment for your injury.
☛ What type of treatment is appropriate.
☛ Whether or not you need to stay home from work to recover.
☛ A permanent disability rating.

Workers’ compensation is a complex area of law. A workplace injury can have a devastating impact on the injured employee as well as his or her family members. Our experienced workers’ compensation attorneys will advocate for you so you get the benefits you deserve.
