Our attorneys help workers obtain coverage for their workers compensation claims, including: Compensation for permanent disability Dependents' recovery for worker's death Lost wages or salary Rehabilitation expenses Job security and retaliation Your employer is prohibited from firing you or retaliating against you for making a workers compensation claim.

Third party lawsuits The workers compensation system governs your rights against your employer.
