Time deadlines are important. We can help you meet these deadlines.
Many injured workers who are successful in obtaining the benefits they deserve owe this success to the timeliness of their actions. Our experienced attorneys can guide you through every step of the process, ensure paperwork is handled properly and handle your claim in a timely manner. For example, your employer must be notified in writing of your accident within 30 days. If you do not do this, you may lose your benefits or face enhanced difficulties in obtaining benefits.
