Workers' Compensation Claims

Get the Legal Help You Need if You've Been Denied Workers' Comp Benefits

Many injured workers do not know their rights and entitlements. We want to explain your rights to you.

All types of workers, including healthcare providers (R.N., CNA, Health Care Assistants) factory workers, truck drivers and construction workers are prone to back injury and repetitive stress injuries from heavy lifting, twisting and bending. A workers' compensation claim can result from a direct injury, a period of long-time exposure like repetitive work injuries and even when there is an aggravation of a pre-existing condition. An injury arising from any combination of the above is compensable as a work related injury.

Our injury attorneys in Milwaukee, can advise you of your workers' compensation rights as well as investigate the potential of a personal injury suit against other third parties. As your personal injury and workers' compensation attorneys, we will pursue each and every claim available to you.

Work injury claims can be complex and workers' compensation insurers will not voluntarily pay you all the benefits you deserve. Even when a claim is conceded, mean, evil or unscrupulous claims adjusters may deny or refuse to pay benefits in which you deserve or to which you are entitled.  Contact our Milwaukee workers' compensation claims attorneys to get the help you need and the compensation you deserve.

Workers' Compensation Claim Denials

If your workers' compensation claim is denied, we will work with you to establish the facts of your claim. Most claims are denied when hired doctors which they inappropriately call an independent medical exam (IME) write a bogus IME report which says the injury is not related to the work or the injured worker can return to work and has reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) or the injury is related to a pre-existing condition or the permanent partial disability (PPD) is less or smaller than found by the treating doctor.

Our Milwaukee workers' comp lawyers are skilled at investigating complex injuries sustained on the job. Denials based on IME's one time evaluations and extremely short visit are frequently defeated.

Workers' Compensation benefits include:

  • Payment For Time Off Work (TTD)
  • Payment For Permanent Injuries (PPD)
  • Payment For Medical Expenses
  • Scar & Disfigurement Benefits
  • Loss Of Earning Capacity
