Have you been exposed to toxins or other substances on the job?

Has your job caused PTSD, depression or some other mental disorder?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, you may be able to pursue workers’ compensation benefits for  lost wages or required medical treatment. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can take charge of the exacting claims process, represent you at administrative hearings and help you obtain the cash and medical benefits to which you are entitled.

When you seek our legal advice and guidance, we assist you in getting the medical care you need to regain your good health so that you can return to work and we evaluate the circumstances and details concerning your occupational illness in order to file your workers’ comp claim.

Our attorneys can get involved in your claim at any stage from filing the initial application, assisting you, if your claim was denied, helping you get benefits reinstated, if the insurance company stopped payments before you were able to return to work.
