Delays in Receiving Workers Compensation Benefits

Denial of Workers Compensation Benefits

A workers compensation lawyer from has the ability resubmit a claim on your behalf and address their reason for denying your first claim.  Most firms have a thorough understanding of what is required to establish how a workplace injury is cause for maximum benefits.

Caps on Benefits

Silver Spring, MD workers compensation lawyers will usually inform you that the most devastating workplace injuries may exceed the cap on benefits that workers compensation offers. This is not fair to the worker who was simply doing their job and now must pay for injury costs above and beyond what the benefits will cover. In the worst case scenarios, those who suffer a permanent disability injury may never be able to return to the workforce and will be vulnerable to not being able to pay their full medical costs and living expenses. Before accepting workers compensation benefits, contact a trusted law firm near you.

To say that I am happy with the outcome of my case is the understatement of the century! Jill Stanley is a BEAST at what she does. That is the only way to explain it. She takes no prisoners. She and her team are very skilled and knowledgeable. I am so happy I trusted them to do their job and rolled with Jill's suggestions. I would choose Jill again 100 times. She settled my case for more than I imagined I would receive. I was literally in tears. It is the best feeling to know my pain isn't for naught. Siri Palm and Kristopher Yorke were nothing short of amazing. They have the patience of saints. I'm 100% certain that I got on their last nerves with my frustration and tears at every other call I had with them. Being in pain and wanting to just be able to heal was all I could focus on, but they helped me realize that I also had to focus on the bigger picture (the case) so I could put this piece behind me. As a high-strung individual with anxiety, it was hard for me to not worry and let them do their jobs, but they reassured me all of the time that they had this. To be injured before the start of the pandemic and have to receive regular, weekly treatment while others are able to stay home is anxiety inducing. I was in pain, I was anxious, and I was just hoping it all worked out. It more than worked out. I hope Jill, Siri, and Kris know how much their hard work and "hanging in there" meant to me. I am eternally grateful. I can't recommend you all enough. If you choose this law firm, you won't be sorry!

I had a great experience with the team at Cohen & Cohen. From my intake attorney, Adam, to the paralegal, Bryan, who worked with me regularly for months to document and prepare my case, to Jill, the attorney who secured my settlement, I feel fortunate to have had their representation and expertise on my side.
