Workers’ Compensation cases where the employer denies responsibility are very complicated. This requires an experienced attorney. Here are some situations where you are entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits:

The time limits for reporting this situation are very short and it is important to get an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer as soon as possible.
- You were previously injured but suffered an aggravation at work. The medical issues are complicated and this requires an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney.
- You were injured on a business trip, performing an errand, or going to or from the workplace. Some of these accidents are covered and some are not. This is a complicated legal issue that requires an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney.
