Our attorneys have over 25 years of workers compensation experience in New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Our knowledge of the workers compensation laws allows us to tailor our legal advice to the specific needs of each client. Not all workers compensation cases are the same, and each involves particularized advice to address the client’s individual problems.
We first familiarize ourselves with the nature of our clients' injury and the problems they are having as a result. We then use our knowledge of the provisions of the workers compensation laws to address their immediate problems. Workers compensation claims can be confusing and complicated. We take the time to explain the options available to our clients and then assist them in making an informed decision as to how best to proceed.
In workers compensation cases, hearings are common and can deal with almost any aspect of a claim. They are also often intimidating. Before going to a hearing, we let our clients know what to expect and how to best handle themselves and increase their chances of success.
Fees in compensation cases are controlled by statute and are generally subject to the approval of the Department of Labor (New Hampshire) or the Department of Industrial Accidents (Massachusetts).
