What Is Worker’s Compensation?
State law requires all employers to carry workers' compensation insurance for their employees. Workers' compensation cases differ from those involving workplace injuries that occur due to an employer's negligence because they can benefit an employee even if his or her own negligence resulted in the injury. If you are injured in the workplace, workers' compensation can help you cover the cost of:
- Medical bills
- Lost wage
Workers' compensation can cover injuries related to accidents ranging from falls to chemical exposure. Unlike a personal injury claim, workers' compensation does not cover pain and suffering.
How We Can Help
We are passionate about achieving justice for hardworking Americans. With our intimate knowledge of workers' compensation law and track record of effective legal representation, we can help injured workers collect the compensation they desperately need in order to rebuild their lives in the wake of a workplace accident. For example, we helped one client to collect $35,000 for a neck strain injury after the client's original attorney recommended a $10,000 settlement. Another client was able to collect $160,000 for a knee injury that the insurance company originally claimed was not related to the workplace injury.

Whether you are in the process of filing a workers' compensation claim, were a denied claim, or received an offer you feel is insufficient, you need an attorney. In addition to investigating the circumstances of the injury, we will review your medical records to understand the extent of your losses. Attorney Corey Belobrow has been analyzing medical records for 35 years, and understands how to use this crucial data to help clients collect maximum compensation. Injured workers are occupied with recovery and other issues, and usually lack the time and resources to file a compelling workers' compensation claim. You can leave this work to our team while you concentrate on healing.
