Workers' Compensation (Work Injury) Lawyers

What is workers'

     Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance that covers medical expenses, and provides benefits, for people who are injured at work.  Your employer is required by law to purchase workers’ compensation insurance.  

     When you – the employee - are injured in the workplace, this insurance is intended to cover the cost of your medical treatment and other benefits. 

     However, workers’ compensation insurance companies are notorious for delaying or even denying your medical treatment. 

     This is why you need The Law Offices of Goodchild and Duffy, PLC.  We aggressively fight the insurance companies and employers on your behalf, ensuring that you get the best medical treatment and benefits possible.

Do I qualify for workers' compensation benefits?

     If you have been injured at work, it is likely that you qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. 

     You may have received a sudden and specific injury at work (direct trauma, a lifting injury, a fall, etc.), or you may have noticed the pain growing gradually after doing the same type of work activities day after day (cumulative trauma).

     Perhaps you were injured by exposure to an unhealthy or dangerous work environment. As a result, you are suffering from pain and disability, and you are in need of medical attention.

     Your medical treatment should be covered by workers’ compensation insurance.  It does not matter if the injury was your fault, or if the injury was your employer’s fault. 

     Depending on the severity of your injury, you may also be eligible for temporary disability benefits, permanent disability benefits, and job retraining assistance.  In situations where your employer does not have workers’ compensation insurance, there is a state fund from which we may be able to get you benefits.
