If you have been hurt at work, you can have Jim Cummings review your case for free. He will handle your case with no up-front fees. He is only paid when your work comp claim is paid.
Connecticut workers' compensation laws can be complex. A worker who has suffered a back, shoulder or knee injury, repetitive trauma or another injury can suffer severe financial distress. The process in obtaining benefits can be confusing and stressful. Insurance companies and employers will take advantage of an injured worker by denying a legitimate claim for medical treatment, undervaluing a claim for lost wages, pressuring the worker to return to work prematurely, discouraging a worker from seeing a new doctor, or refusing to accept responsibility for a repetitive stress injury.
No Up-Front Fees
You do not have to pay anything out of pocket to hire Jim Cummings to assist you with your work comp claim. He is only paid after he makes a recovery on your behalf.
As a rule, it is the employer's insurance company's policy to pay as little as possible to the injured worker. Often, the worker is required to attend many informal and formal hearings just to get the workers' compensation benefits he or she is entitled to. In cases where the employer has no insurance, the rules are technical and the process can be extremely time-consuming. These are but some of the reasons why you should hire a workers' compensation lawyer.
