Were You Recently Injured On The Job?
If you have been injured on the job, you may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits offer two-thirds of your average weekly wage as well as coverage for your medical bills associated with the injury. It does not include reimbursement for pain and suffering or other damages. If you have questions or concerns about the workers’ compensation process or have received a notice of compensation denial, it is in your best interests to seek legal advice and counsel.
At the Law Office of Richard F. Maffett, we represent individuals for their workers’ compensation claims. We can explain your rights and address any questions or concerns you might have about the process. If you have received a denial notice, we will file a claim petition with the Bureau of Workers’ Compensation on your behalf and advocate for your best interests at every step. If your injuries are more severe and you are unable to return to work, we may be able to negotiate a settlement on your behalf. We also can represent you if the insurance company is trying to have your benefits cut off or reduced.
