Do you suspect you’re not getting full benefits? Is the insurer giving you the runaround?
Whether you were injured on a construction site, twisted your back lifting heavy supplies or were hurt in a Vermont car wreck while on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.
In fact, your employer’s insurer is required to pay for medical treatment that the physician considers to be both reasonable and related to your Vermont work injury.
Unfortunately, the insurers care more about their bottom line than yours. They will consider every trick in the book to lower their costs and keep their money — and that means decreasing your workers’ comp benefits, or denying your benefits completely.
Based in White River Junction, attorney Charles L. Powell has spent years fighting for the rights of working men and women in Vermont workers’ compensation cases. He only represents the injured. He has 12 years of prior experience in Philadelphia representing insurers and can use this knowledge and experience to work to your advantage.
Injured on-the-job? Need a lawyer who is on YOUR side?
Injured workers should be able to get Vermont workers' comp benefits without hiring a lawyer. Sometimes the insurers simply don't play fair.
- Your injuries aren't being recognized as serious.
- The workers' compensation adjuster does not return your calls.
- Your prescriptions are being denied.
- Your checks come late.
- Your Vermont benefits were decreased after an independent doctor's examination.
You are not the bad guy for asking what the law says about the benefits you deserve. You are simply standing up for your rights. You deserve fair treatment, and you have the right to hire a lawyer to make sure that happens.
