Medford Workers Compensation Attorney – Andrew Wilson
Andrew Wilson represents individuals who have sustained on-the-job injuries or occupational diseases. Often these workers have to undergo costly medical treatment and experience significant wage loss. Some are even found to be permanently disabled and will need vocational assistance in finding a new career. In Oregon, an injured worker is entitled to compensation benefits, regardless of who is at-fault for the injury. Despite this, employers and their workers’ compensation insurers will often deny or significantly downplay the severity of the injury claim, leaving the worker without the treatment and compensation that they deserve. Having an attorney who will fight for you will ensure that you get the compensation that you deserve.
What will an attorney do for you?
- Appeal a denied or closed claim to maximize your treatment and compensation
- Handle insurance benefits issues
- Aggressively negotiate with claims adjustors to get you a fair settlement of your claim
- Ensure that you receive compensation for the lost wages you have incurred
If you were injured on the job, YOU NEED TO ACT QUICKLY. You are required to file a written notice of your claim with your employer no more that 90 days from the date of the injury. If your claim is subsequently denied or you receive a closure of claim letter from the insurance company, you have a very limited period of time to appeal. These time limitations are taken very literally and if done incorrectly will bar you from further enforcing your rights. Filing workers’ compensation claims is complicated and having the guidance of a good attorney is vital.
