OWCP (Federal Workers' Compensation)
Federal Workers' Compensation Lawyer Representing
U.S. Government Employees Across The United States
Federal workers' compensation is administered by the Office of Workers' Compensation Programs (OWCP). The OWCP is a division of the U.S. Department of Labor. Federal workers' compensation is not subject to state law and is universal throughout the nation. This enables The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., to help injured federal government employees anywhere in the U.S. obtain the federal workers' compensation benefits to which they are entitled.
Are you a federal employee who has been injured at work? Talk to our experienced OWCP lawyer today at 888-351-0424 to arrange a free evaluation of your injury claim. At The Devadoss Law Firm, P.L.L.C., we are committed to helping federal workers secure full benefits and maintain disability coverage until they can return to work.
If you have been injured on the job, it is important to report the injury to your employer. This is true for traumatic injuries as well as occupational injuries, such as repetitive stress. You are entitled to benefits that include wages, payment for medical care and vocational rehabilitation, if necessary. Medical benefits include surgery, hospital stays, supplies for treatment and transportation.
Denial Of Your Federal Workers' Compensation Claim
If you have been denied your federal workers' compensation benefits, you are entitled to appeal the decision. It is important to note that disputes are resolved administratively, thereby avoiding costly and lengthy litigation. Your appeal rights include the right to request reconsideration by the issuing district office. The request needs to include new evidence. We can help you with documenting your request and appealing adverse decisions.
Handling Modified Job Offers
If your doctor determines you are no longer disabled and you have received an offer to work with modified or limited duties, you have options. If you are not able to return to work, our federal workers' compensation attorneys will guide you through the process of obtaining the appropriate documentation to turn down the offer without jeopardizing your benefits.
Disability Benefits And Workers' Compensation
In some situations, federal employees may be eligible for disability retirement benefits. This can depend upon the nature of the injury and years served in government. We are experienced lawyers who can help you analyze your disability retirement claim.
