Get the Help You Need From an Attorney Who Understands
If you were hurt on the job or as a result of your work, you may have to deal with pain and recovery from the injury itself, and you and your family may be experiencing financial hardship as well. The good news is that if you qualify for workers' compensation, you may be legally entitled to receive wage benefits and to have your medical care covered. In addition, you may be eligible for benefits that relate to the loss of use of a body part, to disfigurement, to reimbursement for assistive devices such as wheelchairs, and even to necessary alterations to your home or vehicle.
The bad news is that your employer or your employer's insurance company may attempt to deny or minimize the benefits that you legitimately deserve. They may argue that your injury is not work related, that it is not serious or that it does not require surgery or other treatment. For these reasons, you may need the help of an experienced lawyer to protect your legal rights. That's where we can help.
