I never thought I'd ever need a lawyer, yet alone love having one! And I love that it's Kirk & Teff. They've taken dealing with the various organizations involved in my workers' compensation cases from a nightmare to a "piece of cake." I now know why they were so highly recommended.View More Testimonials
File a written incident report with your employer immediately! The next step would be to contact a workers' compensation lawyer who can effectively handle your case.
We recommend that every injured worker obtain a free case review. Your case provides benefits for life. We can help by informing you of your rights and advising you of the steps you should take. We can protect your interest in the event of lost time from work, reduction in earning capacity, and payment of medical bills.
There is no charge for a full case review and no charge if the insurance company pays you the full amount you are entitled to, without a hearing. There is an attorney fee only if we represent you at a hearing and obtain an award.
Yes. Even if you do not lose time from work, you may be entitled to a money award for loss of use of an appendage (finger, hand, elbow, shoulder, toe, foot, knee, or hip) or lose hearing, lose vision, or obtain a facial scar. Even if you do not receive a monetary award, it is still beneficial to make sure your case is filed correctly because this can provide protection that otherwise would not exist.
