What qualifies as a workers’ comp claim?
Any injury that occurs while you are at work can be considered a job-related injury. This includes ongoing injuries or an aggravation of preexisting conditions by factors at your workplace.

We can assist you with any type of serious accident that could result in a workers’ compensation claim.
Understanding the specifics of a potential workers’ compensation claim
Not every claim is the same. Some are quite serious and long-term. Others are short-term, requiring only a few weeks of paid time because of an injury. The clear objectives, though, are to establish that the injury wasn’t caused by the victim and that the injury occurred in the workplace. Below are important factors in workers’ compensation that you should understand:
- Maximum medical improvement (MMI) — MMI, or maximum medical improvement, is when a workers’ compensation patient gets to a place where his or her injury can no longer get better with the help of medical treatment.
- Compensation appeals — Many times, claims are denied, leaving workers without any benefits. However, a compensation appeal can be petitioned to reverse the decision, granting the worker those benefits.
Additionally, our firm consults with you and represents you on these occasions:
- Filing workers’ compensation claims
- Appealing a denial of compensation
- Reaching MMI
We are with you every step of the way. The MMI and compensation appeal require experience in litigation and negotiation. We’re here to represent you and ensure that your rights are addressed and that your compensation is fair and equitable.
