Lawyers For DC Workers Injured On The Job

Washington, D.C., workers' compensation insurance companies will work vigorously to defend themselves from paying what they deem to be "inflated" or "unnecessary" benefits to workers injured on the job. Employers will frequently deny claims or refuse to authorize required medical treatment or time off from work that has been recommended by your physicians.

If you were hurt on the job in the District of Columbia, or suffer from a work-related occupational disease, call an attorney on the workers' compensation claims and appeals team at Wilson & Parlett. Our attorneys have in-depth knowledge and extensive experience helping injured workers get the money they are counting on for their families when they cannot work because of an injury.

Workers' Compensation Appeals
If your initial claim was denied, you are not alone. A high percentage of workers' compensation claims in the District of Columbia are denied, often because of technical reasons. We regularly appear before the District of Columbia Department of Employment Services to aggressively advocate for our clients throughout the claims process.

We Handle Your Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) Claim, Too

If you suffered a permanent disability on the job, you may be eligible to receive SSDI disability payments. Because both benefits deal with disability, they must be coordinated with one another in order to ensure that there are no miscalculations in your payment amount. We can help you with your disability claim and explain the effect that your combined claims may have on one another.

You Will Never Pay More In Legal Fees Than Your Claim Is Worth

Many workers who suffer job injuries are afraid to hire a lawyer because of the fear of high legal fees. Under the law, attorneys can only collect fees as a percentage of the money you recover from the insurance company. The attorney is paid on a "contingency basis," which means that our office only gets paid if we succeed in winning benefits on your claim.

Third-Party Injury Claims

Workers' compensation benefits are often the exclusive remedy that you are able to pursue against your employer for the injuries that you have suffered while on the job. However, if somebody other than your direct employer caused your on-the-job injury, you may be entitled to sue the party responsible for causing your damages. When we discuss your workers' compensation claim, we will also investigate any potential third-party claims that you may have.
