Workers’ compensation is a system that was designed to benefit both employees and employers. Employees injured on the job receive payment to cover the medical bills and lost wages as a result of their injury. Employers, on the other hand, are protected from direct lawsuits by employees. The system was designed to function flawlessly; a worker gets injured on a job site, reports the accident, and receives benefits while he is recovering from the injury. The problem is that insurance companies are out to make money at the expense of workers. In recent years, studies show that insurance companies deny over 46% of all individual workers comp claims.
The workers’ compensation lawyers at TopDog Law are actively pursuing fair treatment for injured workers across the country. If you suffered a workplace injury, you deserve to know what your rights are to receive financial compensation.
It costs absolutely nothing to see if you have a case
Workers’ compensation benefits are supposed to cover your medical expenses and lost wages, whether or not the accident was your fault, whether or not you had a pre-existing condition, and whether or not you reported it to your employer. Others may see their claims denied when their employers refute that the injury occurred on the job, or that an injured employee was responsible for the harm they suffered.
If your employer tells you that your claim is being denied because the injury was your fault or you failed to report a pre-existing condition, it is crucial that you contact a lawyer. The skilled & knowledgeable workers’ compensation attorneys at TopDog Law are here to help workers no matter how they were injured.
Common workplace injuries include:
In a workers’ comp claim, not all injuries or accidents are straightforward or limited to the employer-employee relationship. There are times when a third party, someone other than the employer or co-worker, may be partially or entirely responsible for the worker’s injuries. These cases are referred to as third-party workers’ compensation claims.
When a third party, such as a contractor, subcontractor, equipment manufacturer, or negligent driver, contributes to a worker’s injury, the injured individual may be entitled to file a third-party workers’ compensation claim. These claims differ from regular workers’ compensation claims because they involve pursuing compensation beyond the benefits provided by the workers’ compensation system. However, it’s critical to consult an experienced workers’ compensation attorney; don’t try to handle these complex claims on your own.
Your workers’ comp attorney can negotiate with the insurance company, accurately evaluate your injuries and damages, and keep you informed of your legal rights at all times. Furthermore, an experienced lawyer from TopDog Law can evaluate how and why your injury happened, help you refute a denied claim, and provide you with the robust legal representation you need in the event that your case goes to trial.

Unlike the damages in personal injury cases, which generally include compensation for non-economic damages, injured workers who rely on workers’ compensation to recover benefits are generally limited to costs associated with their medical treatment and lost income. Additionally, a job injury that results in temporary or permanent disability will likely qualify you to receive disability benefits or supplemental income.
However, if your work injury results in a third-party claim against a liable party, you may be eligible to recover additional damages, including pain and suffering. Depending on where you live, your state may use a “no-fault system” in workers’ compensation law. However, the nuances of these laws can often have a serious impact on injured workers without the legal guidance of an attorney who can work with you to help you understand your rights. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can help you understand what the best option for you may be and take the steps to help you get the results you need to move forward.
The short answer is nothing. Our workers’ comp attorneys work on a contingency basis, meaning they do not get paid unless you get paid.
