Workers Compensation
Workers' Compensation and Personal Injury Lawyers
Workers' compensation law can be difficult to navigate on your own. It is no-fault insurance that entitles you to certain benefits whether you or your employer caused the accident that injured you. Although you do not have to prove who was at fault in order to claim these benefits, you also do not have anyone looking out for what is in your best interest if you do not hire an attorney. It is in the best interest of your employer and the insurance company to conclude your case as quickly as possible while paying you the lowest amount possible. Our experienced work injury attorneys will be on your side, working to maximize the compensation you receive. It's important to choose a Greenville workers' comp attorney who will fight aggressively on your behalf. When you retain us as your lawyers, we will make sure you get the proper medical treatment you need. We'll work to make sure you are reimbursed for your out-of-pocket expenses and the costs of any medication you are prescribed for your injury or illness. We'll be here to negotiate settlements and to work toward maximizing your compensation.

To help you maximize the benefits payments you are entitled to, we offer detailed advice on the proper steps to take to file the most effective claim or appeal possible. Our assistance in gathering all necessary information, including medical records, accident and incident reports and medical opinions can be invaluable in your quest for workers' compensation benefits.
