Services: Worker's Compensation
Job-related injuries are very common; in fact, about 10% of all construction workers are injured every year. If you are injured on the job, you may qualify for Worker's Compensation, which is intended to pay your medical bills and lost wages until you are able to return to work. You may also be entitled to a lump-sum payment for your loss. Obtaining Worker's Compensation benefits isn't always a simple procedure. Insurance companies have a team of lawyers on their side. You should protect your rights with our competent legal counsel. From a legal standpoint, most Worker's Compensation cases fall into one of three categories:
An injury on the job that should entitle you to lost wages and payment of medical expenses.
An existing claim in which the employer attempts to terminate, suspend or modify your benefits.
An employer that fails to comply with the Worker's Compensation Act or its regulations.
