About Workers’ Compensation Law
Workers’ Compensation is in place to ensure that employees who contract an occupational disease or are injured on the job receive the medical treatment they need and required financial compensation when their injury or illness prohibits them from working. Unfortunately, some employers and insurers work to circumvent the law in many ways. They may deny or devalue your legitimate claim, dissuade you from seeking specialized treatment from another doctor, try to convince you to return to work before you are physically able, and seek to make it so difficult to receive the care and compensation to which you are entitled that you give up. These unjust activities often make it necessary to retain the counsel of an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to fight for your rights and get the benefits you need and deserve.
