Second, I had to prove that his death was related to his work accident. His wife testified and his doctor wrote a good medical causation report.

My firm is different from a typical workers’ compensation law firm. We do not take a large volume of cases and settle them cheaply without any intention of taking the cases to a hearing. Also, many times, clients come to us with cases for which they are clearly entitled to a recovery. However, because the injuries to the worker may be minor or they have not lost time from work, we may decide that it is their best interest and they will make more money not hiring an attorney and settling with the insurance company on their own. We tell our clients up front if hiring an attorney will get them more money.

SAMPLE LEGAL CASES

Garnishments Are Intrusive
Garnishments are Intrusive... It's 6:30 in the A.M. and there is a loud knock at your door. Naturally you are alarmed so you proceed to answer the knock with caution. You see from your window, a uniformed sheriff with papers in his or her hands. You have no idea what the visit is all about...but you maintain composure and open the door. "You have been served"... is all you hear. The sheriff walks off and you're left alone to read the disturbing news that you are being sued. I can't tell you how many weekly calls we receive from consumers who phone to say they are being or about to be garnished. They are in panic mode because they understand the ramifications of having less money in your paycheck.
