Knowledgeable lawyers help with workers’ compensation claims and appeals

Our firm assists employees injured on the job so they can obtain the benefits they’re entitled to. Whether your work-related injury involves carpal tunnel syndrome, a spinal fracture or exposure to asbestos resulting in mesothelioma, we understand you may have questions and are committed to answering them. We are fully prepared to advocate for your rights in:

  • Workers’ compensation claims — If you were hurt while performing your work duties, filing a workers’ compensation claim with your employer enables you to collect benefits for medical treatment, physical therapy and rehabilitation as well as wage replacement. We handle claims for injured employees across all industries, including those hurt in construction accidents, which may involve ladder and scaffolding injuries. Our firm can help you establish an evidence-based claim for the benefits you need.
  • Workers’ compensation appeals — Workers’ compensation claims are denied for a number of reasons: application errors, misunderstandings and employer greediness. If you believe your claim was unfairly denied, we can guide you through the workers’ compensation appeals process.

Handling a workers’ compensation case on your own can be frustrating and difficult. Our legal team will develop a targeted strategy and advise you on all phases of your claim or appeal.

We have successfully litigated personal injury claims of all kinds, obtaining sizeable settlements and favorable verdicts. Our firm represents clients injured in:

  • Motor vehicle accidents — A car accident, truck collision or motorcycle crash can leave a victim with piles of bills and long-term physical suffering. If an insurance company is unwilling to make a satisfactory offer for compensation, we are prepared to take them to court. We also represent pedestrians injured by motor vehicles.
  • Slip and fall incidents — Cracked floors, icy sidewalks and wobbly railings are just a few types of premises liability issues that may lead to a serious slip and fall injury. We seek compensation through premises liability claims from property owners and managers who knew or should have known an unsafe condition existed on their premises but failed to fix it.
