Here’s a simple truth: It is more difficult to win a work comp claim than ever before. The laws regarding what is needed to prove your claim have changed to make it harder for the worker to win. The amounts awarded have been dramatically reduced. The law and the judges have become more conservative. Sometime the only way to get a fair amount is to go to trial.
All of these things lead to only one conclusion…you better hire a VERY experienced lawyer. I have handled thousands of work comp claims. I have tried between 150-200 cases. We’ve handled every conceivable injury: spinal injuries, fusions, knee reconstructions, shoulder injuries, scars, death cases and hundreds of carpal tunnel and other repetitive trauma injuries.
We do not guarantee victory. We do promise that we will do everything we can to get you a fair settlement or trial award. We promise it for two reasons: 1) we actually care about our client, and 2) we want to get paid! The only way we get paid it to get you everything we can. The better we do for you, the better we do. We are in this together.
