Workers' Compensation Stories

The Employer Failed To Follow Light Duty Rules. Then We Stepped In.

An employee was injured at work and eventually was allowed to return to the job with light duty restrictions in place. Unfortunately, the employer failed to follow the light duty restrictions and made the employee do a different type of work. This led to the workers' comp insurer denying permanent partial disability (PPD) benefits.

This wasn't right, so we stepped in and were able to not only get the employee the lost wages (for the time frame during which the employer failed to follow the light duty restrictions), but also got his PPD covered with additional funds to cover future medical care.


Insurance Company Denied Everything, But We Still Got Our Client Benefits.

After an employee suffered a head injury at work, the workers' comp insurance company denied everything and would not grant any benefits to the worker. We were able to get all of the employee's out-of-pocket medical expenses covered and made sure that he was paid all of his lost wages. In the end, extra money was even left over for him. He was very pleased that we were able to take the case from no benefits at all to extra money in his pocket.
