You might have had a minor slip in your work area that has landed you in a physical therapist’s office though it’s not providing any relief. Or maybe your illness has persisted a bit too long. Or you’ve hurt your knee, and three months later you still haven’t had an MRI. Hiring a work comp lawyer will be the best way to ensure you receive the best benefits from employer and insurer.

We are not in the business of collecting attorney’s fees on the few cases where we are not needed.
