Workers' Compensation Claims and Appeals
In our workers' compensation practice, we represent workers from all industries who have suffered injuries on the job. We offer intelligent and aggressive advocacy from the moment of first application through the receipt of benefits, throughout conflict over returning to work, and for lump-sum payouts. Our lawyers have won successful results for injured workers with traditionally "difficult" workplace injuries, including:
- Head and brain injuries
- Back and neck injuries
- Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD)
- Shoulder and elbow injuries
- Knee, ankle and foot injuries
- Hand injuries
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
In some circumstances, an injured worker may have the right to file a private workplace injury lawsuit in addition to receiving funds from the workers' compensation system. In legal terms, these cases are known as third-party lawsuits. Our attorneys' joint focus on workers' compensation and personal injury law makes us especially qualified to handle such cases, which often occur in the context of construction accidents.
Injuries and Accidents: Insurance Negotiations and Civil Lawsuits
Outside the workplace, personal injury laws and the practicalities of insurance coverage dictate the amount of financial compensation an injury victim is likely to receive.
In every case, our goal is to maximize the settlement or jury award our client receives. We represent the victims of all types of accidents caused by another person's carelessness or recklessness:
- Car accidents
- Motorcycle accidents
- Boating accidents
- Injuries caused by unsafe products
- Injuries caused by unsafe conditions on private property
- Dog bites and animal attacks
When accidents are fatal, we work with surviving family members to file wrongful death claims to force the responsible party to make payment to the estate of the deceased person.
