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

Unfortunately, a large percentage of injured workers are paid less than they deserve, and many others have their claims denied.

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.
