A workplace injury has the potential to change your entire life. A serious injury can make it impossible for you to perform the everyday activities that you are accustomed to in the workplace and in your home. If you have been seriously injured while on the job, you need to trust that you have someone who is working hard to help you recover the compensation you need when you are unable to work.
The law firm Odegaard Kovacich Snipes has built its reputation on helping injured workers. Our Billings, Helena, and Great Falls workers' compensation lawyers have recovered some of the largest verdicts and settlements in Montana, obtaining over $500 million for our past clients. We have the knowledge and experience that you can rely upon when your livelihood is on the line.
Under the state's workers' compensation laws, there are many specific requirements that you have to follow at the appropriate time to qualify for benefits. This can become quite confusing, and we will make sure that you are doing what is necessary to successfully advance your claim. Some of the issues that we can assist you in your case include:
In addition to helping with workers' compensation claims, our Montana workers' compensation lawyers have particular skill with third-party workplace injury claims. These situations often arise in construction accidents when there is some sort of third party, such as a contractor, subcontractor, or owner who has control over a particular job site. In some of these cases, it may be possible to have claims against these third parties for your injuries. These claims will not fall under the limitations of the workers' compensation system.
We have successfully represented dozens of seriously injured workers with "Safe Place to Work" claims against third parties. We have been associated by numerous firms throughout Montana to work on these "Safe Place to Work" cases.
Work injury claims can often involve many details and factors that need to be closely examined to establish liability. We will gladly review your situation to determine the best approach to take to help you maximize the compensation available to you.
