You can count on the undivided attention of a team that prizes relationships over profits.
We seek to prove the workers compensation case of our clients who have been hurt on the job by offering proof of the severity of the work-related injury. Workers comp insurance companies profit by denying or minimizing claims, and we work to hold them accountable for what they owe persons who have been injured at work. We explore your workmans’ compensation options and alternatives and answer any questions throughout our representation. At our office, you can count on attentive personal service. Your phone calls will be answered or returned promptly, we try to schedule appointments at the times that are most convenient to you, and we are available as long as your case is ongoing.
Workers comp litigation can be time-consuming and stressful. For that reason, we often try to find a way to reach an accommodation with the insurance carrier on disputed workmans compensation issues prior to initiating litigation. If that doesn’t work we are fully prepared to litigate contested issues to a conclusion before judges at the Industrial Commission. When you suffer a serious work injury, you may wonder if you will ever be able to return to work, how you will pay for your medical treatment, and how long benefits will last.
As your workman’s compensation lawyer, I will explain the processes and procedures of workers comp claims and help you understand your rights. If a hearing is necessary, I will prepare your case, obtain necessary evidence through the discovery process and fully advocate for you at your hearing. I am a member of the Workers’ Compensation Advisory Commission of the State Bar of Arizona. This is a group of plaintiffs’ and defense lawyers and judges who rule on new applications and reapplications, which are required every 5 years, from lawyers who are Certified Specialists in Workers’ Compensation.
