By contacting an attorney earlier rather than later, you gain advantages you might otherwise miss out on. When we start on your case early, we can help make sure you don’t make mistakes, face common pitfalls, and damage the value of your case irreparably.
After over 36 years of representing Rochester’s injured workers, we’ve told clients time and time again: the only mistake they ever made was not hiring us early enough. By starting a discussion early, we are able to proactively create a plan of action to protect your health and the health of your legal case.
We’re here to help you every step of the way. We recommend doctors who can make all the difference in the world. We also notify you of available benefit programs that you otherwise may never have heard about. Whatever your specific needs, we help you make the best possible choices to improve your financial status and life.
Don’t wait--every day counts. Every day is a day that you could be treated by a doctor who would better suit your needs, or file for additional benefit programs (perhaps you’re losing out on those payments right now!) The sooner you call, the sooner we can make sure that you are being paid fairly for your workers’ compensation claim.
We’re ready to start getting you the benefits you deserve--give us a call today at (585) 232-3240 for a consultation.
Don’t wait! Your health and livelihood could depend on it.
Far from being based on simple math, the law includes complicated ways that insurance carriers will exploit to keep payouts low. Your average weekly wage will play a huge role in determining every cash payment you get throughout your entire claim-- this is where many injured workers can run into problems without the help of an experienced lawyer.
Without proper legal advice, injured workers frequently get stuck with an unfairly low average weekly wage. What if you have two jobs? What if you took unpaid vacation or sick time (before your injury) that makes it look like you earned less than usual? What if you work full-time over four days per week, making it look like you are only a part-time worker? Our lawyers can address these issues, giving you confidence that the insurance carrier is paying you fairly.
Without an experienced lawyer, you could also have issues asking the Workers’ Compensation Board to recognize and establish all of your injuries and conditions. Although this seems simple, we’ve seen countless cases in which insurance companies refused to pay for treatment because the Board did not address all injuries. What if your doctor didn't document all of your injuries? What if you waited to address a problem with your doctor while "toughing it out," because you hoped it would go away on its own?
From day one, our dedicated attorneys and staff will work with you to ensure that you make your claims properly and promptly. With our decades of expertise, we can ensure that the Board correctly and favorably calculates your pre-injury average weekly wage and recognize the true extent of your injuries.
Without an attorney, even a small mistake can affect your physical and financial health. Don’t let yourself or a loved one make a mistake with a workers' compensation claim. Give us a call today.
