When you’ve been injured on the job, you are entitled to seek disability benefits, as well as the cost of medical expenses, in a workers’ compensation claim. Unfortunately, if your injuries are serious and catastrophic, you may be surprised to learn that the workers’ compensation insurance company doesn’t want to treat you any differently than someone with minor injuries. That’s why it’s critical to have an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to advocate for you.
At Pyrros & Serres, we have successfully recovered substantial benefits for workers whose injuries were extensive. We represented a man who suffered injuries at work that left him wheelchair bound and in need of constant medical care. In initial dealings with the workers’ compensation insurer, our client was offered a settlement of $100,000, clearly insufficient to meet his needs for the rest of his life. We refused to accept the insurer’s inadequate offer and impressed upon them the severity of the man’s injuries, as well as his basic needs. Because of our advocacy, the man received a $1 million settlement offer, as well as a new motorized wheelchair.
The moral of the story? Don’t ever accept business as usual! Hire an experienced and aggressive workers’ compensation lawyer to protect your rights.
