What to Do First After a Workplace Injury
Your injury must be reported to your employer, whether it was the result of an accident or an occupational injury that developed over time such as carpal tunnel syndrome. This is the first step, and it is a critical one. The benefits you are entitled to include: wages, payment for medical care and vocational rehabilitation if needed.
Overcoming Denied Federal Workers’ Compensation Claims
Filing a workers’ comp claim after being injured at work is a simple task. However, if your claim is denied, having an experienced lawyer on your side is critical. You can appeal the denial. Your appeal rights begin with the right to request reconsideration from the issuing district office. Our law firm helps with this and all other phases of your appeal. One important detail: These disputes are resolved administratively, saving you from time-consuming and costly litigation.
Disability Benefits and Workers’ Compensation
Federal employees may be eligible for disability retirement benefits, depending on the situation. These benefits depend on the nature of the injury and the years spent working for the government. If these benefits are available for you, we will help you get them.
