Strong Legal Advocates in Workers’ Compensation Cases
After an injury on the job, most employees have the right to collect workers’ compensation. They have the right to appropriate recovery time before returning to work. They have the right to get their jobs back after recovery. They have the right to necessary accommodations to allow them to cope with any disability that remains from the injury.
Employers and workers’ compensation insurers, however, often put roadblocks and obstacles in the path of an injured worker seeking to recover, survive financially, and return to work as able. Employers may try to dissuade employees from returning to work — or fire them outright.
Insurers may try to force an injured worker to see only a doctor of their choosing, rather than allowing him or her to be cared for by his or her own physician.
Injured workers often find it necessary to get help from a lawyer to get what is rightfully theirs after a workplace injury. Our attorneys advise and represent employees who have been hurt on the job, to help ensure that they receive all benefits that they need.
At the same time, we evaluate every workers’ comp case to determine whether a third-party liability claim may also apply — against an equipment manufacturer or a subcontractor, for example. Often we discover a legal avenue that will bring more financial help to the injured employee.
We advocate as needed with employers to ensure that our clients get their jobs back, and get proper accommodation for injuries and disability.
