Work Comp Benefits Can Be Hard to Obtain-Let Us Fight For the Settlement You Deserve

Being hurt at work can have a significant impact on your life. You are faced with medical expenses to treat your injury. And because you can't immediately return to work, there is less income coming in. The experienced workers' compensation attorneys at The Law Offices of Deborah G. Kohl can help you make sure you get the benefits you deserve.

Rhode Island and Massachusetts Workers' Compensation laws guarantee medical care and lost wages restitution for any on-the-job injuries, illnesses or long-term occupational diseases you may have suffered. Every expense related to your workplace injury should be covered, from ambulance, hospitalization, surgery, prescriptions, physical therapy and bandages to payments to make up for income lost due to temporary or permanent disability. When someone other than your employee is also at fault in your work injury, third-party claims also come under Workers' Comp insurance. Unfortunately, injured workers often come in to our Providence, RI, Fall River and Foxborough, MA offices telling us that they are struggling with the Workers' Comp appeal process because their job injury claim was denied. That's where we come in. For over 35 years, we've been successfully representing injured Rhode Island and Massachusetts workers, and we can help you too.

Despite Workers' Comp law, injured RI and MA employees are frequently given the run-around by Work Comp insurance adjusters. Don't sign off on anything until you have spoken with us! There are many reasons to hire a Workers' Comp lawyer . With our extensive experience, high success rate and familiarity with the Work Comp process, including appealing denied claims, we can help you get your life back through powerful legal representation.
