Every year, millions of employees are injured in the workplace. The workers' compensation lawyers at The Lohman Law Offices, PSC, have a proven track record of success in this area of law. Our team knows what evidence to obtain from your treating physician to build a strong case in front of the judge, fight against your employer's possible defenses, and ensure you are compensated a full and fair amount.
Our office is very experienced in representing individuals in workers' compensation claims, and we have recovered millions of dollars for individuals who have been injured in the workplace. Workers' compensation claims arise when an individual is injured at their place of work or in traveling for work purposes. It's that simple.
You don't have to prove that somebody was negligent. You don't have to prove that an employer caused someone's injury. A fellow employee may have caused the injury. Or you may have done something that you shouldn't have at work. It doesn't matter. It's still a valid workers' compensation claim. All that is required is that you were injured at the workplace.
Once an individual is injured at work, the first and most important thing to do is to make sure and report the injury as a work-related injury to the employer, because there's a statutory requirement that the employer is notified of a work injury. The reason an injured worker should choose the Lohman Law Office to represent him or her is because we have a proven track record of being successful in workers' compensation claims.
There are a number of defenses that employers can use in defending themselves against a workers' compensation claim, whether it is claiming that the client had a pre-existing condition, claiming that the client did not report their injury early enough, claiming that the statute of limitations has expired, and the list goes on.
We face these claims with clients that come in and we face these defenses by employers all the time, and we know how to beat them. We know how to be successful in representing our clients and in proving that their injury occurred at the workplace.
And over the years, we've become very good at procuring this evidence from treating physicians, and properly submitting the evidence to the administrative law judges, and arguing successfully in front of the judges for judgments and findings in favor of our clients. That's why someone should hire us, because our track record of success speaks for itself in workers' compensation claims.
