When you have an accident at work, your first thoughts may jump to questions such as:
“Will I be okay?”
“How will I pay my bills?”
“Will I lose my job?”
Workers’ compensation laws were designed to protect workers by addressing those questions.
Recovering from an injury can be a frightening time and it’s hard to know which attorney to call. When your wages, your family, and your future are at stake, you deserve a specialist by your side. You certainly wouldn’t consult a foot surgeon about heart surgery. Likewise, do not hire just any attorney to handle your workers’ compensation case. Hire a specialist.
