Worker’s Compensation, sometimes referred to as “Workman’s Compensation” or “Worker’s Comp”, is the name given to a system of laws meant to protect injured workers.
The goal is to make sure that somebody who is injured at work receives appropriate medical care, lost wages relating to the on-the-job injury, and, if necessary, retraining and rehabilitation, so as to be able to return to the workforce.
Frequently, injured workers will benefit from consulting an attorney who can advise them in protecting their Worker’s Compensation benefits and defending against the premature termination of benefits. Even if your employer is not currently contesting your right to benefits, your attorney can monitor and advise you, at no cost to you, so you ensure that you do not get your benefits terminated before you are ready to return to the work force.

Our experienced attorney’s can help walk you through the process and monitor your case so you receive the benefits you deserve for the proper duration of time.
