Are Your Best Interests Being Protected?
Employers and insurance companies want to settle your workers’ compensation claim as quickly and inexpensively as possible. They may deny or undervalue legitimate claims or pressure you into returning to work before you are ready. If you’ve become permanently disabled, you may even be pressured into accepting a low cash settlement.

Third-Party Claims Are Complicated
As both a personal injury and workers’ compensation lawyer, Shawn knows how to identify potential third-party claims. A third-party claim may arise when a party outside of your employer is partially responsible for your injuries. For example, you may have been injured by a defective machine. Here, he can pursue a workers’ compensation claim as well as an action against the manufacturer of the defective machine and all others in the chain of distribution.
Knowledgeable. Aggressive. Strategic.
Since workers’ compensation is such a complex area of the law, it is relatively easy for injured workers to become confused about the process. As a result, it is easy for employers and insurance companies to take advantage of someone who suffered a workplace injury. In these trying times, securing the counsel of an experienced attorney may be your best option for recovering full benefits.
