Case Management And Legal Representation

Our attorneys have practiced workers' compensation law in the Roanoke Valley since 1986. We are highly knowledgeable about your workers' comp benefits, and we are familiar with the area judges who handle hearings and appeals. As a result, we are better equipped to advise you and intervene than out-of-town firms or lawyers who handle work injury as a satellite practice.

We can address every aspect of workers' compensation claims, including conflicts that arise from:

  • Incorrect wage benefits
  • Denial of necessary medical treatment
  • Ultimatums from employers to return to work
  • Termination of disability claims
  • Independent medical exams
  • Unfairly low disability ratings
  • Eligibility for vocational rehabilitation services

Should I Settle My Workers' Compensation Case?

We get many inquiries about lump-sum settlement of claims for permanent disability. You may be tired of dealing with the employer or fighting the insurance company for physical therapy and other treatments. We can provide analysis and negotiation for this important juncture. It may not be advisable to sign away your medical benefits if you are still treating or dealing with complications.

When we are involved early in your case, we can help to maximize your benefits and set up your claim in a way that is most conducive to a beneficial settlement. We know what your case is worth.
