You have a right to a safe and healthful workplace. If you've suffered an injury on the job, make sure you know what kind of benefits you might receive under workers' compensation coverage. Your employer - who is required to carry workers' compensation insurance coverage - should give you a workers' compensation claim to complete and return to him or her.
While not cut and dry, workers' compensation is definitely something that a seasoned and well versed attorney can handle. Our firm has handled many cases, likely similar to yours, and will tackle the issues involved with a level of expertise you will be more than satisfied with. Using the latest techniques and most relevant and trained experts, the Berniard Law Firm will go forward aggressively to get you the best results possible.
In some instances, legitimate workers' compensation claims may be denied by aggressive compensation carriers. An insurer can claim you haven't been injured, or that the injury you've suffered isn't serious enough to qualify for workers' compensation benefits. If this is the case, you may stand to lose critical benefits, such as medical care coverage, financial help and job retraining.
