  • You believe you are not receiving the correct benefits, or wonder if there are additional benefits you could receive.
  • Your medical benefits are denied.
  • Your employer has disputed a decision made by your state workers comp division.

Why Do You Need An Attorney?

Regardless of the circumstances of your worker's compensation claim, you are always entitled to obtain an attorney. If your injuries are severe enough that your life will be permanently altered, either because of permanent bodily impairment or a change in ability to work, a worker's compensation lawyer will be able to advocate on your behalf to ensure that you receive the medical care and worker's compensation benefits to which you are entitled. In addition, if your injury may keep you from working permanently, a lawyer can advise you about filing for Social Security disability benefits as well.
