Unable to Work Due to Injury?

Workplace injury brings about many difficult questions. How will the medical bills get paid? How will you make up lost wages, and when will your next check come? How do you report the accident? Why is the insurance company calling you and should you talk to them? Who is on your side? We work hard to make this process easier on you. 

We Get You What You Deserve

If you suffer an injury at work or occupational disease that prevents you from working, you are entitled to receive wage loss benefits and free medical coverage. Our firm has extensive experience in fighting for workers’ compensation benefits for our clients for all types of workplace injuries.

In addition, if a third party is partially responsible for on-the-job injuries, you may have a valid personal injury claim. Our team approach means we are able to handle and file a personal injury lawsuit while working on your workers compensation claim.

Did you know: Workers’ compensation is often complicated. A skilled attorney helps navigate the process, maximize your benefits, and minimize the chances of denial.
