If you have been injured on the job, you may be eligible for workers' compensation. Workers' compensation benefits are meant to compensate for lost wages while you recover from your injuries. You may also need to pursue a claim against a third party if they caused your injuries and you are facing additional medical expenses.
Handling All Types of Workers' Comp Claims Over the last several years, there have been drastic changes to Montana's workers' compensation system, and none of those changes has benefited the ones who need the protection the most - the worker. It is more important than ever that injured workers obtain aggressive, dedicated and passionate legal representation. We can provide this type of legal representation for your case!
In most workers' compensation cases, it is standard practice for an attorney to take part of their payment from a client's wage loss benefits. While this is a valid method of payment, we prefer to leave your wage benefits checks alone. We believe that this will help you to maximize your ability for recovery, and we will not be taking payment when you need that money to finance your personal life.
No matter what kind of job you work at, you deserve protection. Workers' compensation should be provided for all employees, especially those working in physical labor, like construction. Let our legal team advocate for your rights and help you pursue the financial support you need during this time.
