If you have been a victim of someone's negligence you have rights.

Given your unfortunate plight you will have one overriding concern obtaining results for the wrongs you are suffering. The best way to obtain those results is by hiring an experienced personal injury attorney.

I'm attorney Dennis Shillen, and since 1980 I have devoted my entire legal career to the work of advancing the rights of personal injury victims. Just like you wouldn't ask a foot doctor to perform necessary brain surgery, when you are hurt in an accident you should seek an attorney who is experienced in personal injury litigation.

Workers Compensation

Seeking Maximum Compensation for Injured Workers in Vermont & New Hampshire*

When you work in any industry, you should feel that your employer is striving to keep you safe. If you have been injured on the job as a result of negligence or safety hazards, you may be entitled to compensation. However, this does not mean that your employer is required to make it easy on you to get the financial help you deserve.

Common Types of Workplace Accidents

Workplace accidents can occur in a number of different ways. Whether your injuries are minor or life-altering, we will fight for you to receive the compensation you deserve.

A few types of workers' compensation cases we handle include:
Slip and fall accidents
Falling object accidents
Commercial vehicle accidents
Burn or explosion accidents
Chemical exposure
Understanding Workers' Compensation Law

Your employer is required to take certain precautions to ensure that you are not hurt on the job. Often employers fail to do this by being lax with their safety standards, leading to injured employees. While they are required to have workers' compensation insurance, they cannot be held legally responsible outside of a workers' compensation claim.
Your employer or their insurance company may try to pressure you into taking a settlement. We highly recommend that you speak with a caring Vermont workers' compensation attorney from our firm before doing so. If you would like a free consultation, contact us now at (802) 243-0078.
