Workers' Compensation

If your workers' compensation claim has been denied, don't give up. With a lawyer's help, you can appeal the denial. Many claims are initially denied, but later approved when the correct medical information has been submitted.

Compensation For On-The-Job Injuries

Workplace injuries can be caused by repetitive stress and traumatic accidents. In addition, occupational diseases caused by working conditions can result in injuries and illnesses such as cancer, respiratory illness, loss of hearing and brain damage. Injured workers may suffer temporary or permanent disability, or wrongful death.

The specifics of your workers' compensation benefits will vary depending on the severity of your injury and may include:

  • Reasonable and necessary medical care and related expenses
  • Disability benefits
  • Vocational rehabilitation benefits
  • Death benefits for survivors

Typically, workers are not entitled to collect compensation for pain and suffering under workers' comp. We can seek this compensation from a negligent third party when applicable, however.

When a negligent third party such as a contractor or manufacturer is liable for your accident, we can file a separate personal injury suit against that party. Damages you receive from third-party suits are in addition to your workers' comp benefits and may include compensation for pain and suffering.
