Our Workers' Compensation Practice

Workers' compensation is a "no fault" insurance program that provides the following benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses:

  • Medical benefits
  • Temporary total benefits
  • Permanent partial benefits
  • Permanent total benefits

It also provides death benefits to dependents of workers who have died as a result of their employment. We will work with you at any stage of a workers' compensation claim, whether you have just been hurt and need to protect your rights, or your claim for benefits has been denied. If your employer initially refuses to pay workers' compensation for an injury sustained on the job, we can swiftly move to bring court action to expedite the payment of temporary disability benefits so that you get the compensation you need to meet your financial obligations. We can also make certain that your rights are protected while you recover from your injury, taking any necessary measures to prevent an employer-selected doctor from sending you back to work before you are healthy.

In cases of dispute between an injured worker and the employer and/or insurance carrier over entitlement to benefits, the worker may file either a formal claim petition or an application for an informal hearing with the Division of Workers' Compensation.

Disputed issues may include whether the injury/illness was considered work-related, the type and extent of medical treatment, and/or the payment of temporary disability benefits. Such disputes are often resolved only after a full trial before a workers' compensation judge, and our attorneys have years of experiencing successfully trying these disputes to conclusion.

When you hire us to assist you with a workers' compensation claim, we will carefully explain the law and the process, as well as your rights and options. When appropriate, we will seek an independent medical opinion to establish or extend temporary disability and get the additional medical treatment you may not have received from the company's doctor.

We represent people who work in all types of occupations, from law enforcement officers who have been injured in motor vehicle accidents to factory workers who have suffered an on-the-job injury because of a fall or the negligence of an employer or co-employee.
