Have you suffered an injury while on the job?
If you are injured while performing work duties, you are generally covered by worker's compensation which provides benefits of medical care, rehabilitation therapy, and lost wages. Getting all of the compensation you need and deserve to support yourself and your family, however, usually requires the skilled and persistent legal assistance of a workers' compensation lawyer. You may find your benefits being delayed or denied due to employers challenging your claim for any number of reasons.
Under the rules of the workers' compensation system, your employer's insurance company chooses the doctor who will perform your initial medical evaluation. Insurance companies favor the use of doctors who they know will minimize the extent of your injuries or the medical care and services you need to fully recover. If you passively accept the results of the initial exam, in most cases you will receive less compensation than you deserve.
Being injured and unable to work can be financial nightmare for many workers and their families. Faced with increased medical and out-of-pocket costs and reduced income, your financial security can be severely threatened. At the Palmer Law Group, we understand your concerns; we have extensive experience in handling workers' compensation cases of all kinds. We can arrange for you to get a second medical opinion. If it indicates that your injury is more extensive than the original medical exam indicated, we will work diligently on your behalf to help you get the full compensation you need.
