No Matter What Your Occupation, We Will Fight for Any Injured Worker in RI or SE Mass
When workers are hurt on the job, the workers' compensation system is supposed to help them pay medical bills and get by until they recover. But employers and insurance companies often try to keep benefits to a minimum. The experienced workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl stand up for injured workers.
Our philosophy is simple: If you were injured on the job or were hurt while doing anything related to work, you could have a Workers' Compensation case and we will help fight for your rights. Some work injuries are clear-cut Work Comp accidents, such as:
- Construction site fall back injuries
- Toxic exposure due to chemicals or fumes
- Firefighter burn injuries
- Hospital worker needle sticks
- Utility worker electrocution Injuries
- Police officer gunshot wounds
- Company car accident head Injuries
- Industrial accident amputation injuries
Workers' compensation benefits include coverage of medical expenses related to the workplace injury and partial wages until the worker can return to the job. But employers can challenge claims. Insurance companies often dispute the extent of injuries and whether a recommended treatment is needed. They may even decide you are ready to return to work even if you are still recovering.
Our law firm has a long history of helping injured workers in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. We can help you navigate the claims process to get the benefits you deserve. Our attorneys know the obstacles that employers and insurance companies put up, and we know how to build a strong case for benefits to overcome those obstacles.
