It is illegal to terminate an employee for filing a workers’ compensation claim. If you were laid off, reassigned to a lesser-paying position or otherwise retaliated against for filing a legitimate claim for workers’ comp benefits, he can help.
The workers’ compensation process involves filing paperwork and a series of hearings and dispute resolution measures. Questions often arise, such as, “Do you want a lump some of money?” and “Do you qualify to receive lifetime benefits?” As a result, you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney represent you throughout this process in order to ensure that your rights and interests are protected.
Joe Dunn offers comprehensive and knowledgeable legal advice regarding work-related injuries. During the course of the workers’ comp process, our lawyers can help protect your rights and help ensure you receive:
- Medical care from the doctor of your choice
- Temporary total disability
- Wage differential pay
- Training or job rehabilitation
- Necessary Social Security Disability benefits
Workers’ Compensation and Social Security Disability
If you are suffering from the aftereffects of a workplace injury, you may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability in addition to workers’ compensation benefits. Joe will assist clients in protecting their rights and collecting both forms of supplemental income.
