Law firm stands strong for injured workers


A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed instances when workers' compensation claims can be denied and when worker's compensation doesn't apply. If you are an injured worker, then being denied these crucial benefits can leave you facing financial uncertainty while you try to reclaim your health. This can be frightening, stressful and unacceptable.

If you were injured on the job and you were performing your job duties when you suffered harm, then you should stand a pretty good chance of recovering workers' compensation benefits to help you pay for medical expenses and lost wages. Yet the amount of success you have on your claim relies, in large part, on your ability to put forth a convincing claim. Therefore, you need to make sure that your workers' compensation claim is backed up by evidence and, if possible, illustrates how the incident conforms with workers' compensation law.

You will, of course, face pushback, whether when filing your initial claim or when filing an appeal. When this happens, you need to know the law and how to utilize the evidence at your disposal to push back. For many injured workers, this is challenging as they are not experienced in the law and they just want to focus on getting their life back on track.

This is why we at the Law Offices of James L O'Rourke stand up and fight for those who have been injured on the job. We understand the toll that unexpected medical expenses and lost wages can take on an individual's life, but we also understand that these individual's deserve the compensation promised to them by law. Although we cannot guarantee that every initial claim or appeal will succeed, we do promise to give every claim our very best, ensuring that it receives the attention, and chance of success, that it warrants. After all, we want our clients to find the financial security they need so that they can reclaim their health and get back to their day-to-day jobs.
