  • various physical and mental or psychological injuries from accidents at their workplaces and while on their jobs.

We have also represented the families of workers who have died because of their work injuries, obtaining benefits for their children and widows

The lawyers at our firm know what questions to ask your own doctors to prove you have been injured at work. If you need to see a special doctor for examination, we can refer you to an expert qualified to assess your work injury. We have worked with many different physicians, including in the areas of orthopedics, neurosurgery, neurology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, internal medicine – pulmonary, cardiology, psychiatry, and psychology. We have also worked with, and can help find, physicians, trained in naturopathic, homeopathic, or chiropractic medicine.

Our lawyers can advise you what medical and wage loss, or disability, benefits you should be receiving. If you were recently hurt or your injury was a long time ago, we can explain if you are entitled to payments because you cannot work at all, cannot find light duty, or have a permanent disability. We consult with labor market and vocational experts who can help you find a new job if you are disabled from your regular work, or who will help us prove you are totally disabled if you cannot work at all.

The lawyers at our firm are available to consult with other lawyers, doctors, psychologists, and professionals whose patients or clients have questions about or problems with a work injury claim or workers’ compensation case.
