Columbia County Workers' Compensation Lawyer

Kirk & Teff, LLP, provides quality legal assistance to individuals throughout Columbia County. Columbia County has an estimated 2012 population of 62,499, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Hudson serves as the county seat of Columbia County. Census Bureau estimates show that there are more than 25,600 households in the county. The average household income for a family is approximately $57,000.00.

Workplace accidents that result in injuries not only lead to physical pain and suffering, but they also usually lead to costly outcomes, such as expensive medical bills and the loss of income because of temporary or permanent disability. After individuals are injured on the job, they are more likely than not eligible for workers' compensation benefits, which help to cover these costs. While this resource is available through the employer's workers' comp insurance carrier, there can be many roadblocks that prevent injured workers from receiving the full amount of financial support they truly deserve. It is in injured worker's best interest to enlist the help of a skilled Columbia County attorney when filing a workers' compensation claim.

At Kirk & Teff, LLP, we have more than three decades of experience fighting to protect the rights of injured workers. We know that there are many individuals who end up being underpaid, and there are even those who unfairly receive workers' comp denials. With our extensive experience, we have provided legal guidance to thousands of clients in their efforts to pursue fair workers' compensation or Social Security disability benefits (an alternate form of compensation for those injured in the workplace). Kirk & Teff, LLP, has been fighting to safeguard injured workers' rights for more than 30 years. Furthermore, the firm's legal team leverages more than 185 years of collective experience.
