We have earned a reputation as strong advocates for injury survivors, providing them a level playing field after an injury. Employers and insurance companies are not able to push our clients into accepting an inadequate offer; we make sure our clients understand all options for obtaining the full workers’ compensation benefits and third-party personal injury compensation they deserve.
Seeking Full Benefits And Compensation For Injured Workers
We have been helping the victims of workplace injuries for more than 30 years. This includes pursuing workers’ compensation and personal injury claims involving:

- Chemical exposure
- Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
- Back and neck injuries
- Head injuries
- Depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)

We can handle both claims simultaneously, taking care of your legal issues so you can focus on getting better.
