If you suffered a serious injury at work, not only are you in pain but you are also worried about your future.

Maybe you need expensive medical treatment. Maybe you are not being paid and medical bills are piling up while the insurance company is denying payment or pressuring you to settle. Or maybe it is just becoming too complicated. No wonder you feel stressed and overwhelmed.

Let us take the unnecessary stress away.

We’ll negotiate fair compensation and necessary treatment so you can stop worrying about your finances and get the peace of mind to concentrate on your recovery. Our team of experts can assist you in obtaining the Workers' Comp Benefits you deserve. Imagine how great it would be to never deal with an insurance adjuster again and have a strong, competent ally to take care of any trouble the insurance company may cause you.

When should you consider contacting a lawyer?

Anyone who was injured at work should file a workers’ compensation claim. But you should talk to a lawyer if any of the following situations apply to you:

  • You were seriously injured at work through an accident or gradual onset (for example, you developed back problems after years of physical work).
  • You were injured seriously enough that you aren’t able to do your job or earn your wage the way you used to.
  • Your injury takes you out of work for more than a few weeks or requires surgery.
  • You are left with a permanent injury.
  • The insurance company has denied your workers’ compensation claim.
  • You suspect the insurance company is not paying what they should.

If any of these situations apply to you, contact us for a free case assessment today to make sure you get the treatment you need and the compensation you deserve.

Get fair compensation
In the last three years, we have recovered more than $20 million in settlements and agreements for our clients. For example:
$700,000 cash settlement
for a construction worker who fell from a scissor lift, injuring his neck
$640,000 in medical expenses
for a truck driver who broke his ribs and suffered internal injuries in a fall
$75,000 in vocational rehabilitation benefits
for a medical technician who tore her rotator cuff, to become a nurse

Workers’ compensation benefits we can help you get

Higher compensation. Better medical care. Emotional support.

Temporary or permanent workers’ compensation benefits

Did you know? If your workers’ compensation claim is accepted, the insurance company often must pay for the treatment related to your injury forever. This includes surgery, office visits, prescription medications, massages, acupuncture, and even gym memberships.

We can help you get:

  • Temporary benefits to support you while you’re recovering from your injury
  • Permanent benefits to help you live with a disabling injury

These benefits can include wage replacement to cover lost income, coverage of all related medical costs, job retraining, education, and more.

Have you already paid for an injury-related treatment?

If that treatment should have been covered by workers’ compensation, we can help you get the money back. Contact us to find out if you’re eligible for reimbursement.

Better medical care

With over 40 years of experience, we know the good and bad medical providers in Vermont, and we know what treatments workers’ compensation will and won’t cover.

To give you the best possible chance to recover, we’ll recommend the best providers for your injury and make sure the insurance company pays for it.

Better settlements

The insurance company wants to pay you as little as possible. And they may get away with paying you much less than you’re entitled to if you try to negotiate with them yourself. Just because they know the workers’ compensation laws better.

But not when you have us on your side. We know the system inside and out, too. And if you want to resolve your claim by negotiating a settlement, we’ll ensure you get fair compensation.

Emotional support

You’ve been through a lot. You don’t need all that stress from fighting with the insurance company or worrying about your bills. It will only prevent you from recovering faster.

Let us help. We’ll take the unnecessary stress away and be your ally. Someone who will always listen and understand. And someone who’ll ensure the insurance company isn’t taking advantage of you.

No Charge Until We Win

We don’t charge anything up front. Nor do we bill hourly for our time. We work on a contingency basis and get paid based on how much money we win for you. So, technically, it’s not you who’ll be paying us but the insurance company.

Whatever happens, you’ll never end up owing us money. Your situation can’t get worse than before you hired us. But it can get much better if you decide to let us help.
