A workplace injury or illness can disrupt your entire life and impact your future career options. However, dealing with a workers' compensation claim when you should be healing can feel overwhelming.
We can help...
Workers’ compensation is a system intended to ensure employees have the funds they need to recover from a work-related injury or illness.
Most employers are required to have insurance to cover workers’ compensation claims and those providers must fairly consider your claim for coverage.
However, navigating a workers’ compensation claim can quickly become complex and stressful, especially if your initial claim is denied.
A workers’ compensation attorney from Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton can help with all stages of your claim to ensure you receive what you need to recover and begin rebuilding your life.
"I lost part of my leg in an industrial accident and was referred to Flickinger Sutterfield & Boulton by my work compensation attorney... I ultimately received approximately $750,000 in settlement and continued medical benefits for life for my injuries. Kevin was also able to negotiate a significant reduction of the medical and workers compensation liens to assist me and increase my recovery." Chris, Spanish Fork, UT
"What people need to understand first and foremost is that the insurance company they're dealing with on the other side is not a charitable organization. They are not there to look out for the rights of the people who have been injured...
"[We] get a great deal of satisfaction out of helping people who otherwise would have absolutely nowhere to turn and help them put their lives back together..."
In most work-related injuries, the main route for compensation is an administrative claim. These types of claims typically only cover lost wages and medical expenses, though they may also include benefits for permanent impairments.
With an administrative claim, you follow the normal steps for reporting a work-related injury or illness. While you do not need an attorney for this type of claim, additional support from our team can ensure you follow the process properly and receive proper coverage.
If your injury was caused by someone other than your coworker or employer, you may have the right to file a third-party claim. With a third-party claim, you can receive compensation for pain and suffering, as well as medical expenses and lost wages.
This type of civil case can supplement your benefits from an administrative claim or help you receive what you need if your employer’s insurance carrier denies your claim. Our team can help you investigate the cause of your work-related injury or illness and pursue a personal injury case against those responsible.
