When you are injured at work, recovery can be difficult. If your injuries are serious, you may need rehabilitation or assisted care for the rest of your life. Serious injuries may prevent you from ever returning to your job. The loss of income and the enormous medical bills further add to the stress and financial burden with which you and your family must cope. Navigating through the insurance claims can be disconcerting and mind boggling.
The Law Office of Jessica Sousa, P.C. has successfully represented injured workers and their families with workers’ compensation claims for over a decade. We know how important it is that you are allowed the necessary time off from work to recover and that you continue to get paid.
Unfortunately, receiving the benefits that you are owed is not always easy, and employers and their insurance companies have been known to claim that an injury did not happen at work or that a worker is entitled to less benefits. An insurer or employer may also try pressuring an employee to return to work sooner than what the doctor is recommending.
If you are injured while on the job you should contact our firm immediately. An experienced attorney will advise you of your rights and help you file your claim for workers’ compensation benefits. If you have already filed a claim for benefits that is being denied or disputed, The Law Office of Jessica Sousa, P.C. can help. Our attorneys have successfully argued our clients’ cases before the Board of Industrial Accidents so that retroactive, current and future benefits are paid immediately. We have successfully forced the insurance companies to pay medical benefits that they had previously denied.
