initial application all the way to the appeals, we fight for you.

Do You Really Need an Attorney?

Anytime you seek a legal settlement, at least seek initial legal counsel. We are passionate about client education, keeping our clients in the know about the progress of their case as it moves forward. It is our job to make sure you understand your options and have honest and thoughtful counsel.

From the beginning, you can benefit from retaining the services of our workers’ compensation team. However, especially when a claim is denied, we become an indispensable asset.

In the event of a claim denial, we will outline your options:

First, an appeal is filed with the Appeals Board. This appeal requires certain forms filled out with precision. Having us not only review your forms but walk you through completion of them can bring a certain peace of mind.
We will receive notification of a hearing. At this hearing, you will have the opportunity to tell your story to a judge. This personal experience requires detailed preparation. With our experience, you can walk in confident.

What if They Approved My Claim, But Disagree With My Treatment Plan?

Sometimes, an employer’s insurance company will approve payment of your workers’ compensation claim but will require that you receive different treatment than what you desire.
This form of denial also requires additional follow-up.
