We not only know the law, we helped write it.

Who qualifies for workers' compensation benefits?
If you get hurt on the job, you are entitled to appropriate compensation for your injuries. That’s the law. Your compensation may take the form of a number of benefits, including:
» Lost wages/missed work
» Medical expenses reasonable to treat the injury or illness
» Benefits to cover a specific loss, such as a limb or the ability to use it
» Payment for severe disfigurement or scars
» Coverage for participation in certain physical or vocational
» Death benefits, such as payment of burial expenses (where applicable)
Your workers' compensation case: a video guide
Understand the entire claims process by watching this short video.
We will help you decide on the right [claim] petition for your circumstance and file your claim successfully. Here are some types to consider:
» Loss of Wages Petition
Requests compensation payments for missed work time, or inability to continue to perform at work due to partial or total disability.
» Scar Petition
Requests compensation payments for one or more scars to the head, face, or neck.
» Specific Loss Petition
Requests compensation payments for loss of a limb or other body part, or loss of use of a body part.
» Reinstatement Petition
If your claim is in suspended status (you do not receive wage loss benefits but you are receiving medical benefits for your injury), one of our experienced workers' compensation attorneys can help you a file a reinstatement petition to allow you to begin receiving wage loss benefits again. The insurance company will not advise you of this. They may even tell you that your claim is closed, when in fact, it is not.
» Lump Sum Settlement
You may receive an offer from the insurance carrier to settle your case for a lump sum of money. Get the legal opinion of an experienced workers' compensation attorney before accepting such an offer. Many insurance companies will attempt to offer only a fraction of the compensation deserved.
If you have a medical condition and can’t work, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. Contact us today for a FREE consultation.Learn More
