Getting injured on the job can turn your life upside-down. Filing a workers’ compensation claim – only to receive a denial letter – can seem like another jolting setback in an already difficult situation.
Fortunately, a denial is not a dead end. You still have options to pursue your claim through the administrative appeals office. Seeking experienced legal guidance is a key ingredient for success.
At the Law Office of Morrin & Sands PLLC, we represent injured and ill workers from all industries and backgrounds. With more than three decades of experience, our legal team can analyze your situation and help you implement a strong strategy for getting benefits – even after an initial denial.
If you were wrongly denied workers’ compensation benefits, you can turn to our firm for experienced, dedicated representation. We can work for you when you can’t work.
Following a denied initial claim, the next step is a hearing before a judge. Sometimes this hearing is automatic, but in certain situations, you must request it. Taking swift action is important to avoid missing critical deadlines. Our attorneys can advise you of how to proceed.
During the hearing, you and your employer will have the opportunity to testify, present evidence and call witnesses. This stage is an important opportunity to make a compelling presentation before the judge. With our firm as your advocate, you can rest assured that your case is in professional hands. We have extensive experience handling workers’ compensation hearings. As a result, we know what makes a strong case.
We understand that your financial situation may be tight following a
work-related accident, injury or illness. As a result, we offer contingency fee representation, meaning you will pay us nothing unless our lawyers obtain benefits for you.
