Protecting Workers’ Rights For Decades
When you are injured at work, more than your health is at stake. Your very livelihood could be at stake. Workers’ compensation benefits are intended to help people who have suffered an injury at work get the resources they need to stay afloat during a hard time. Although in theory the workers’ compensation process should be easy, sometimes it is not. It is critical to have someone on your side who will fight to get you all the benefits you are entitled to.

How We Can Help
Our lawyers will help you understand all the benefits that are available to you in your workers’ compensation case. These benefits include:
- Medical benefits: These benefits include all necessary and reasonable medical treatment, prescriptions and hospitalization services related to a work injury.
- Out-of-work benefits: These benefits are available while an injured or ill worker is recovering from his or her injury.
- Permanent partial disability benefits: After your medical treatment has concluded you are eligible to receive a monetary award.
- Permanent total disability benefits: When a work injury or illness prevents one from returning to any type of gainful employment, permanent total disability benefits are available.
- Death benefits: Dependents of a worker who dies because of a work-related injury or illness are eligible to receive death benefits.
Our lawyers have experience representing people in every type of workplace accident or illness, including:
- Pulmonary and respiratory injuries: Regular exposure to toxic substances on the job can cause respiratory and pulmonary conditions.
- Repetitive motion injuries: Repeating the same or similar movements many times over the course of your workday can cause damage to the effected muscles, nerves, tendons or ligaments.
