Workers’ Compensation

Protecting the rights of workers

All employers with over four full-time employees in West Virginia are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This coverage helps compensate workers who are injured while at work or as a direct result of their job duties.

Our firm assists clients who need legal help and guidance claiming their workers’ compensation benefits. We represent a variety of workers all across the state:

  • Construction workers
  • Miners
  • Factory & plant workers
  • Restaurant & hotel workers
  • Truck drivers
  • Health care workers
  • Public employees
  • Police & fireman
  • Teachers and school service personnel

Working with an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can ensure that your claim contains all the necessary medical evidence and documentation and that it is filed correctly.

Stand up to insurance companies and make the strongest claim possible for your benefits with a tough legal advocate at your side. We will make sure you understand the claims’ process and get the best possible representation for your claim.

Common injuries and claims

Over the years, attorneys at our firm have handled workers’ compensation claims for thousands who have suffered injuries or developed diseases suffering from their work. Unfortunately, we have seen many suffering workers whose injuries were no fault of their own.

This inspires us to fight harder to get our clients the compensation they deserve for their injuries:

  • Back & neck injuries
  • Loss of limbs
  • Cancer from toxic exposure
  • Black lung
  • Asbestos & mesothelioma
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Hearing loss
  • Broken bones
  • Repetitive stress/use injuries
  • Occupational lung disease
  • Traumatic brain injuries

Many injured workers struggle to get the medical care they need approved by insurance providers. Our lawyers step in with legal guidance, so that clients understand their rights and can assertively claim the benefits owed to them by their employer and the insurance providers involved.

On-the-job accidents and injuries

Sometimes, when a worker is injured in an on-the-job accident, negligence of another party or faulty equipment is involved. In these cases, workers may be entitled to other compensation by pursuing a personal injury claim for their damages. Our firm can help you build a strong case so that you are fully compensated in those situations.
