Why do I need an attorney for a workers' compensation claim?

What Does Workers' Compensation Cover?
Workers' compensation programs vary from state to state, but they generally
provide the injured employee with money to pay for any treatments required
for maximum medical improvement. Workers' compensation also provides
injured individuals with a percentage of their normal income, usually
approximately two-thirds of your normal rate. If you are suffering from
a work-related accident, we can help you prepare your claim to seek the
benefits that you deserve.
