Help For Workers’ Compensation Claims
If you have suffered an injury on the job, you are probably worried about providing for your family and covering your medical expenses. Your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company is supposed to pay for your medical costs, lost income and any disability awards. But first, you need to file a successful claim with that insurance company, which will likely try to deny your claim or minimize the amount it pays.
Workers’ compensation law is complex and difficult. A lawyer who works occasionally in the workers’ compensation area will be at a disadvantage to the lawyers regularly representing the insurance companies. Experience can mean the difference between a fair recovery and one that is less than adequate.
