Have you been injured?

Does your employer have worker’s compensation insurance?

Are you covered under a short term disability plan?

Long term disability plans?

These are questions that can be very daunting when you’re injured.  We are here to help.  We have dealt with hundreds of disability and worker’s compensation issues.  Some can be solved with a simple phone call.  Contact us today for a free consultation, and we can explain to you your options.  If filing a claim is necessary, we do so on a contingent fee basis, which means we do not get paid if you don’t win.
