  • What Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?

    If you’ve suffered an injury while doing your job, you deserve to be fairly compensated for your hardship. A skilled workers’ compensation lawyer will fight to make sure you get the full amount you’re owed.

    Here are some examples of ailments that might qualify for workers’ compensation:

    • Head injuries (concussions and traumatic brain injuries)
    • Other acute physical injuries (broken bones, torn ligaments, and herniated discs)
    • Occupational diseases (illnesses like mesothelioma or impairments such as hearing loss)
  • Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?

    The Workers' Compensation Code in West Virginia states that if you’re injured while doing the tasks included in your job description, you are entitled to recover:

    • Medical expenses
    • Lost wages
    • Permanent disability benefits (in the case of permanent injury)

    Even if your situation seems clear-cut, however, your employer might not be willing to cooperate. That’s where we come in. Morgan & Morgan has big-business resources but family-style attention to detail, and we don’t give up until you’re fully compensated.

  • How Do You Appeal a Workers’ Compensation Denial?

    If your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the end of the line. The insurance company might claim that your injury came from a preexisting condition, didn’t occur on the job, or didn’t happen at all. In some cases, they may even accuse the employee of fraud.

    If your claim has been denied, you still have the right to an appeal. However, you have only 30 days to do so after the decision has been made. Time is of the essence, so don’t wait to contact our Charleston office.

  • Can I Afford A Lawyer?

    Our attorneys operate on a contingency fee basis, which means we don’t get paid until we win your case. Our fee comes out of the trial winnings or successful resolution of the case, so you never pay out of pocket. This is just one way we show our clients how seriously we take their claims.
