Our attorneys frequently represent clients who have been injured at work. We help clients understand their rights under workers’ compensation laws and navigate the Department of Labor process. Our team also represents clients in trials or appeals to the Vermont Supreme Court. We are committed to working with our clients to ensure that they obtain the benefits to which they are entitled by law.
Among other things, we can assist with the following issues:
Temporary Disability Benefits
If you have been totally or partially disabled and unable to work due to a work-related injury, we can assist you in obtaining weekly benefits to help make up for lost income.
Permanent Disability Benefits
If you have suffered permanent disability as a result of a work-related injury, we can help you recover permanent disability benefits, either partial or total.
If you have been injured on the job, we can assist you in obtaining payment for reasonable and necessary medical expenses resulting from the injury, including mileage reimbursement, or vocational assistance if you are physically unable to do your old job or comparable jobs.
Retaliation And Discrimination
If you have been retaliated or discriminated against by your employer because you filed a workers’ compensation claim, we can help you get the compensation you deserve.
Claims Against Third Parties
If you have been injured on the job, and the injury was the result of negligence on the part of someone other than your employer, we can help you make a claim against that third party.
