Workers' Compensation

Being injured at work goes beyond simple pain and suffering, it can impact you significantly in terms of medical expenses and lost wages if you’re unable to perform your job duties for any length of time. With so much at stake, you want a high performance team to handle your case with the empathy you deserve and the legal expertise and tenacity to pursue and defend your claim from insurance companies.

The good news is that state laws require employers with three or more employees to carry workers’ comp insurance. This insurance holds employers strictly liable — meaning you don’t have to prove the employer was at fault for the injury, just that it occurred during your job duties. This insurance covers medical expenses related to the injury and provides lost wages for time out of work due to the injury. 

The challenge is that it’s the job of insurance companies to protect their own financial interests by limiting their own financial responsibility – at your expense. As a result, insurance adjusters routinely dispute the cause or extent of a worker’s injuries, which results in denied or delayed claims. Or you may be offered a fraction of what you’re entitled to in the hope you’ll sign away your rights to pursue the true award you might be owed.
