Board Certified Workers' Comp Specialist
As a Board Certified Specialist in Workers' Compensation Law, I strive to understand the nature of your work injuries and the true impact of them, including how physical limitations and bouts of depression have affected your life. With that information, I communicate how personal injury and worker's compensation laws can work for you.
You Need Strong Advocacy Following a Workplace Accident
If you have suffered any of the following types of injuries in a workplace accident, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits to compensate you for lost wages, permanent disability and medical expenses:
- Back or spinal cord
- Ankle and foot
- Shoulder and knee
- Hand and wrist/carpal tunnel
- Head trauma or brain
Depending on the situation, you may be entitled to additional compensation against a negligent third party (other than your employer).
While it is tempting to resolve your workers' comp case immediately with the insurance company, you need to focus on your long-term needs, not a short-term financial gain. Although a quick settlement of your workers' compensation benefits or other benefits may initially reduce the strain of your injury on your family, it typically will not sufficiently address your future needs resulting from your work injury.
As an experienced workers' compensation lawyer, I advocate for clients in any workers' comp appeal situations where their insurers have denied claims of injury or wrongful death, and those denials have risen to insurance disputes.
