Work Related Accidental Injury & Occupational Disease Claims
Selected as one of area’s top lawyers in SUPERLAWYERS and the WASHINGTONIAN!
If you suffer an accidental injury while you are working, or develop a work related occupational disease, your problems don’t end with your physical and emotional difficulties. You will also have to deal with the logistical problems that your injury or disease create, such as payment of your medical expenses and payment to you for your lost time and permanent damage to your body. If you qualify under the law, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance company should pay all of this and sometimes more, but how can you be sure that they are paying all that is required by the law? The insurance carrier will do everything that it can to reduce the amount that it pays to you or on your behalf. It will even attempt to use the law to disqualify you from benefits, so that it will never have to pay anything to help you.
The Law Offices of Jezic & Moyse, LLC stands ready to help you. We will ensure that you are receiving all that you are entitled to under the law. We will advise you on every step of the workers’ compensation process, from filing the claim with the appropriate governmental agency to settlement. If your injury or disease is so severe that you require lifetime medical care as available in some cases, Jezic & Moyse will stand by you for as long as necessary to get you all of the care that the law will allow. If the insurance carrier refuses to cooperate, we will take your claim to an administrative hearing with the appropriate governmental agency to attempt to win an order from the government requiring the carrier to do what we believe the law requires it to do.
