I represent the common woman and man. I believe everything should be explained thoroughly and in understandable terms. Getting injured on the job can be a scary and life-altering event. Getting your worker’s compensation benefits can be a complicated process to get through that requires excellent representation. Through my education and experience, I strive to make a difference in the lives of my clients by leveling the playing field against the powerful insurance companies who profit by denying benefits to injured people.

There are panels of doctors that you are forced to choose from, and who you choose can affect your significantly affect your case.

3. Temporary Compensation If your employer does not put you on modified work when you are physically restricted from our job you are entitled to temporary compensation which is 2/3 of your weekly wages up to 104 weeks or until you are declared stationary by your doctor.

4. Permanent Compensation Impairment is based on the American Medical Association Guidelines to Permanent Disability. The disability percentage adjust the impairment based on future earning loss estimates and variables based on your occupation and age, taking into account the apportionment to non-industrial causes of your impairment. This benefit is typically paid out over a period of time at 2/3 of your wages capped at $290.00 per week.

Settling the Claim We settle cases with lifetime medical care awards and without.  Achieving the highest value of a claim requires extensive research and experience.  Careful drafting is necessary to avoid undue effects on other benefits you are entitled to like Social Security Disability Insurance and Medicare.
