What is My Workers’ Comp Case Worth?

Knowing how much money you may receive when you have been injured in a work accident is important.

 

The value of your workers’ comp case is based on many factors, including: (1) your pre-injury income and compensation rate; (2) whether the claim is contested; (3) the number of weeks of wage loss payments remaining; (4) your ability to return to work; (5) how much money you can make in a light duty position; (6) whether you suffered permanent injuries to a scheduled body part; and, (7) the cost of future medical treatment.

 

One mistake in a medical record, an incomplete form, or a missed deadline can make the difference between immediate payments or years of delay. You will face bureaucratic red tape, with the insurer trying to deny you justice. Hiring a work injury lawyer gives you an advantage. And we can serve as your guide through this process.

 

You can rely on workers compensation attorney Corey Pollard’s knowledge of laws governing industrial accidents as well as our day to day experience in dealing with the offices, doctors, and judges who will decide your case to increase its value.

We can help you in:

Work Injury Cases Involving:

Back and Spinal Cord Injuries

A back injury affecting the lumbar spine, cervical spine, or neck is one of the most common types of work-related injuries. Back injuries can be long-lasting and affect your upper and lower body.

 

Knee Injuries

A knee injury can require months of therapy, surgery, and the need for a cane. Knee injuries also increase the risk for arthritis that requires a total knee replacement. If you hurt your knee at work, you may be limited to sedentary jobs.

Construction Accidents

Construction sites often involve multiple workers from multiple employers, heavy machinery, and countless risks such as overexertion and debris. As a result, they are often the scene of serious and catastrophic workplace injuries.

Slip and Fall Accidents

Slip and fall accidents on the job are a leading cause of work-related injuries. We can help you obtain wage replacement and permanent disability compensation if you suffer an injury in a slip or trip and fall – no matter the location. 

Work-Related Car Accidents

If you are a tractor-trailer truck driver or someone who has to travel for work, you are at greater risk of getting hurt in a motor vehicle accident on the job. If you were injured in a work-related car accident, you may have not only a workers’ comp claim but also a third-party claim against the driver who struck you in the crash.

Workers Comp Brain Injury/Concussion

Concussion

As technology advances, we are seeing an increase in the diagnosis of workplace concussions and traumatic brain injuries. Post-concussive syndrome can cause dizziness, headaches, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, and an inability to return to any type of competitive employment full-time.

Shoulder Injury

Your shoulders, arms, and hands play an important role in performing your job tasks. A rotator cuff tear can be debilitating, limit your ability to lift, carry, push, pull, and reach, and prevent you from going back to work, especially if surgery is required. Our work comp attorney can help you move to a new career.

Loss of Limb/Amputation

A severed limb accident or the loss of a limb due to surgical amputation or a crush injury, often caused by heavy machinery used in construction and manufacturing, can be devastating. Our workplace accident lawyer will make sure you get full compensation to improve your quality of life when you lose a body part in an industrial accident.
