At Brown Paindiris & Scott, our attorneys understand how workers' comp works, and we want you to understand as well. Workers' compensation provides injured workers with benefits for medical bills and lost wages. It does not provide coverage for pain and suffering.
As experienced attorneys, we make a point of doing everything possible to maximize the amount of benefits you receive because of your work injury. There are techniques that we can use to achieve this goal. We will do everything possible to see that you walk away with a significant amount of money, potentially in the form of a lump sum settlement, to compensate you for your misfortune.
Compensation For Workers Injured In Any Line Of Work
Since 1977, we have handled workers' comp claims in all fields, including:
- Construction workers
- Police, firefighters and corrections officers
- Factory workers
- Truck drivers
- Nurses and other medical professionals
- Warehouse employees
Whether you were just recently injured at work and have not yet filed a workers' compensation claim or you have started the process only to be treated unfairly by the workers' comp insurance adjusters, you can be confident that we can help you.
We Go Beyond Workers' Compensation
While workers' compensation is the first option for workplace accident victims, there are situations in which a work accident personal injury claim can be filed to obtain additional compensation. This option is available only in limited circumstances in which the accident was caused by a third party. In other words, the accident must have been caused by someone other than your employer. This is common in construction accident cases, in which the accident is caused by a subcontractor working under a different employer than the victim, as well as in work-related auto accidents caused by a co-worker or another driver.
Claims Handled On A Contingency Basis
All workers' compensation claims are handled on a contingency basis. You are not required to pay any attorney fees unless we get compensation for you.
