State workers help maintain the proper functioning of Vermont’s infrastructure. From road work to the court system and law enforcement, the work can lead to situations that put the State worker in harm’s way.
Whether working with heavy machinery and materials or in the crossfire of crime, Vermont State workers can suffer injuries and illnesses that may entitle them to workers’ compensation benefits.
Reversing Poor Decisions
At Biggam Fox Skinner, we will help you reverse wrong decisions made by PMA, the insurer handling all of the State's workers’ compensation claims.
These decisions can include:
Taking the full 21 days to accept or deny your claim when it is clear that you were hurt at work
Saying they didn’t receive your medical records when you know they did
Not reimbursing your mileage for going to appointments (maybe not even telling you about this benefit)
Injuries Sustained by State Workers
Perhaps you are unable to work because of a mishap with a loader, cement mixer, or scaffolding, or an accident involving a weapon, a criminal assault, or chemical exposure. You may have a spine, neck, or back injury from a motor vehicle accident that you suffered while working for a State agency.
Whatever the case, if you are suffering from an injury while workingfor the state, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
There are several common workplace injuries for Vermont State workers, such as:
Neck, spine, and lower back pain
Orthopedic injuries to upper or lower extremities
