We will assist you in getting your medical bills paid and obtaining the weekly benefits you deserve. Strong Law Offices will also fight for appropriate access to quality medical care. Strong Law Offices will coordinate all correspondence with the insurance carrier or its attorney so that you do not need to be burdened with this or to inadvertently give potentially damaging information to the insurance carrier.
- Penalties for nonpayment: If your employer or the insurance company has missed the deadline for a benefits award, you may be able to seek compensatory damages. We can evaluate your case and determine if you are eligible to pursue this route. Sometimes the insurance carrier can be penalized for up to 50 percent of the unpaid award or related medical expense if there has been a willful and vexatious denial or delay. Insurance carriers are also subject to a penalty of $30 per day for late temporary total disability payments. Strong Law Offices aggressively pursues penalties when an insurance carrier has wrongfully denied benefits.
- Workers’ comp appeals process: If your claim has been denied, we can evaluate your situation and appeal your claim on all appellate levels. Our attorneys are experienced in handling appeals and will work to gather all necessary information in order to prove the effect of your injuries on your ability to work.
