    We'll get your situation under control

    At a workers’ compensation hearing, the judge will evaluate your claim and use fact-based evidence to determine how much you’ll receive in benefits. A judge will look at your medical records and medical diagnosis (MRI, X-ray, EMG).

    In many cases, the insurance company will schedule an employer medical examination (EME) by a doctor of its choice, which you must agree to. After reviewing medical records and performing an examination, the doctor will write a report about his or her findings. Unfortunately, some of these doctors show bias in favor of the insurance company.

    Our attorneys can help you fight for the compensation you need

    Prior to your workers’ compensation hearing, we can help you  calculate the full amount of your medical expenses and lost wages. You will also need medical bills and paystubs to provide evidence to the judge. We can use this evidence to determine how much you’ll receive in workers’ compensation benefits.

    Additionally, you will need to document important details about your injury. These include:

    • The date and time of your work-related injury
    • When you reported the injury
    • The nature of your injury
    • All medical evaluations and procedures

    Once your hearing begins, a deposition or expert witness can help you win your workers’ compensation case. We might seek testimony from the doctor who treated or evaluated your injury, an independent medical examiner or a vocational expert.

    Never exaggerate your injury. If the judge suspects fraud of any kind, he or she may deny your claim. If the judge asks you any questions, answer them directly and honestly. Let us handle the rest.

    If you have been hurt at work, don’t hesitate to speak to an attorney at Tabor Law Firm, P.A. With a vast amount of legal knowledge, we can answer the most complex questions regarding your workers’ compensation claim.
